Hope for Tomorrow announces receipt of an $8,000 COVID-19 Response Grant from The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley (CFFRV) for the purpose of providing food, shelter, safety equipment, and case management to our indigent Recovery Home Program residents and homeless veterans program. In these extremely challenging times of uncertainty, it is nice to know that Foundation such as CFFRV are there to help their community. This Response Grant will lessen the burden our resident's face as businesses close due to the COVID-19 crisis.
On behalf of HFT's Board of Directors, administration, and residents we serve, thank you CFFRV for your generous support.CFFRV -
COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND OUTCOMES
As a result of the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley's (CFFRV) generous support, Hope for Tomorrow (HFT) was able to safe, structured, substance-free housing to six civilian men and five homeless veterans. CFFRV's support allowed HFT to provide nourishing meals, supportive housing, counseling and case management, occupational training, and life skills, thereby allowing all these men to secure full-time employment, a sober self-sufficient lifestyle, and permanent supportive housing.
During the Christmas Season, Hope for Tomorrow was blessed by Trinity Church of The Nazarene. As part of Trinity’s Twelve Days of Christmas. Their goal was to bless organizations and families in need by giving $12,000 in twelve days. Hope for Tomorrow was blessed with Trinity’s generosity. At the time of the giving our Homeless Veterans Program, a shelter needed its handicap accessible ramp replaced due to years of weather and use. With Home Depot gifting Hope for Tomorrow with the required material and Trinity’s generosity, it made the expense for Hope for Tomorrow more manageable. Thank you, Trinity Church of The Nazarene and Home Depot, for your generosity. It takes collaboration with community-minded agencies and individuals that allows us to continue working with individuals to reduce homelessness and substance abuse, prevent relapse, identify and treat mental illness, and aid reintegration back into the communities.
