A Community Thrives: Fundraising Challenge

House of Hope is participating in A Community Thrives, a grantmaking and crowdfunding program from the USA TODAY NETWORK. The initiative is part of the Gannett Foundation and supports nonprofit organizations with projects focused on community building. Since 2017, the program has helped to distribute more than $17.7 million from donations and grants across the nation.

House of Hope is raising funds to open a youth drop-in center for at-risk youth and youth experiencing homelessness at our current shelter facility. We will work with community partners to ensure that youth in the Greater Green Bay area gain and maintain self-sufficiency and thrive well into adulthood.

To be considered for a grant of up to $100,000, House of Hope needs to meet a fundraising goal of $6,000 by 8pm on Friday, August 12th, and we are only 13% of the way there! Please donate now. Because a community thrives when every youth thrives!
