HOUSE OF HOPE FUNDRAISER 
 

Starting NOW,  we are launching a fundraiser for the House of Hope and Caring Transitions, both located in Waterloo.  Attached is a checklist of items they are always in need of. They would be appreciative of any donations you would be willing to give. Please pass this flyer on to your friends as well. These Foundations are pretty special as they focus on Pillars, a prevention program approach, which teaches women coming from distressed circumstances (who usually have children to care for) life skills, financing, literacy, and good parenting.  They meet with their case manager weekly and can stay in their housing for up to 2 years.

Caring Transitions focuses on foster kids graduating from high school and transitioning into their life. They are provided with as many tools as possible to ensure success.  The transitional housing has a capacity to serve up to five foster kids, ages 18-24. 

Transportation has been a constant struggle, so they are asking for cash/Uber/Lyft cards to help. They do use public transportation, but often get stranded and then are late to work.  Donations will be used by both foundations.  You can drop all donations off to the Board Office by February 14.
