SUMMER BLOCK PARTY
Summer 2021 has officially arrived at the Hope Center and everyone is excited about it! This summer has looked a little different than expected because the Hope Center has been undergoing repairs due to storm damage. However, with some flexibility and help from other community members, we have been able to continue working with the underserved community and our children and youth. Friday we were able to bring back our SUMMER BLOCK PARTY! Slip N Slides, hotdogs, chalk, basketball, and lots of smiles and laughter make these parties something that everyone looks forward to and we cannot wait for the next one.
The Hope Center Summer Block Parties are something we will continue to host throughout the summer as an opportunity for the youth to come out and enjoy some fun in the sun in a safe environment. These simple yet stimulating types of events help to administer opportunities for our staff and volunteers to get to spend time with our students and encourage positivity and meaningful relationships. They also help to cultivate emotional, mental, and character well-being. Whether it’s through an activity, a meal, or a conversation, we believe that the first step to inspiring HOPE is spending time with these kids and being a source of encouragement.
