NEW HOPE NEWS // 12/22/20

// New Hope Family

Your support helps foster families that care for our most vulnerable. Your donations purchase items foster families need: diapers, formula, bedding, shoes, even vehicles, gas, childcare, housing costs, & helps put food on the table.

Fostering is a calling. If you have a heart for kids in need, connect with New Hope- we will match your gifts with a part of the circle of love that the New Hope Community has developed.

We like to say that there are many ways you can get involved:

You can adopt- if not called to adopt,

You can foster- if not called to foster,

you can provide respite childcare for an adoptive or foster family.

If not called to childcare,

You can run errands, do laundry, buy gas, buy a cup of coffee,

and PRAY!

There are many ways to give to hurting children through the New Hope for Families Community. Your donations help us provide for foster families and support our beautiful community center where foster families and friends gather for trainings, fellowship, family time, play groups, mom's groups, tutoring, and free shopping at our Kid's Closet.

As the WDIO Trees of Hope campaign comes to a close, as well as 2020, please consider making a year-end donation to help us in continuing to provide for children and families in need.

Blessings from New Hope for Families

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
