NEW HOPE NEWS // 1.31.20

// U P D A T E S The New Hope FOR Families first annual Love Gala, hosted on November 09, 2019 was a wonderful blessing for all involved! With over 135 guests in attendance, we raised over $32,000 used to further the roof repair, keep the heat on, continue renovations at our New Hope Community Center, and meet various needs for foster families! Since our last New Hope News, we were able to help supply + coordinate gifts for 6 foster families at Christmas time. Through the Christmas Eve offerings of Anchor Point Community Church, we were gifted with $6,332.10 also used to help support our foster families! To date, we have been able to speak at five local churches, a Rotary Club, St. Scholastica, and have provided homes for 51 foster children. We launched our New Hope Foster Mom's support group with 10 moms able to join us and we look forward to meeting once a month. We anticipate the grand opening of the New Hope child care center early spring of this year. Please watch our social media + website for the specific opening date.

September Updates!

We are happy to report that our open house was a grand success! It was a beautiful

Evening with a constant stream of folks interested in learning about New Hope For Families touring our newly renovated community center and learning more about New Hope. 

Thanks to Mary Hermanson for the beautiful music as people explored our wonderful

sanctuary and placed bids on our silent auction items - we raised over $1,300! 


The highlight of the evening was special guest and keynote speaker Ray Hansen,   founder/director of Rio Bravo Ministry - a children's home in Reynosa, Mexico - the inspiration for New Hope For Families.  Ray delighted all with his journey of faith and the story of how he began this amazingly successful children’s ministry, from the ground up, caring for the needs of hundreds of children in his community.  It was a wonderful evening establishing many new connections within our community! 


Thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who donated silent auction items, Johnson's Bakery for the fresh-baked cookies and Hope City Church for sharing your sound equipment for the event, and last but definitely not least, thanks Ian Devaney & Jeff Nast for volunteering as our sound guys!  Thanks to them, you can view a recording of Ray’s talk on our NHFF  Facebook page.


A big hi-five and warm welcome to our new Kids Closet coordinator Kristina Linder.  Kristina, her husband Brian Linder and artist Amy Halverson coordinated, designed, built,  and hung our new building signage.  Beautiful and so helpful!!  (If you have Kids Closet needs or donations, please contact Kristina - 218-310-8313)


We would also like to introduce our new media coordinators, the amazing brother and sister team -  Ian and Michaela DeVaney.  You guys Rock!


The current needs of our foster care families include diapers, size 3 and larger; Pull-ups; unscented wipes; a bike stroller, boys and girls sweatpants small, medium & large.

community center needs include helping hands with small building, electrical, plumbing  projects, carpet and flooring; paper products; gas cards, coffee (grounds or k-cups), bottled water.
We love the saying, "many hands make light work" - this has surely been our story - every little bit helps alot!

Warmest regards,

Therese Gruba
