I have admired them for years. They are a national leader in best practices to help people in poverty move from the immediate crisis they are facing (for food, for shelter, for heat) into a stable and self-sufficient situation.
Hopelink does so much for the community, from getting food into hungry kiddo's tummies, providing transportation or a stocked backpack to help them with back to school, meals for the hungry, providing assistance for those times when you just don't have enough to get by, job training, housing assistance and more. We are so lucky to have them in our community!
Hopelink helps people in our very own community, giving them the tools, support and guidance they need to emerge from poverty. The folks who work and volunteer at Hopelink are the most compassionate, caring people and passionate about making our community a better place and advocating for people who's voice sometimes gets lost.
