// U P D A T E S Hello! It is so wonderful to connect with you again! Even though we have not connected with you on a regular basis via social media, the Lord is still providing... >> Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to consistently provide for families in need with necessities such as car seats, strollers, diapers, baby wipes, formula, clothing, shoes, bicycles, life jackets, and a safe place to land during difficult time. >> Our foster moms support group continued to meet on a weekly basis through zoom! >> During the lockdown, we found zoom instrumental in being able to support one another when respite care providers could not come in and the foster children could not have in person visits with their families. >> Our community center continues the work to reopen the day care center in the next couple months to serve our community with twenty preschool slots (14 toddler and 8 infant slots). >> 1000 + clicks on our website! Thank you!! (we wanted to make a little celebratory note of that!)

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
