Traumatic experiences have a ripple effect on people, expanding beyond the individual, onto families, and into communities. When trauma is not processed (and ultimately resolved) it creates unhealthy patterns that follow a person through life and into future generations. A victim of violence may end up having to deal with up to 11 different systems before court cases are resolved. Where do you even begin? This is where HOPE Coalition comes in.

HOPE exists to fill the gaps caused by trauma – to walk along-side during a crisis. The ultimate goal is to end the generational cycles of abuse, violence or poverty, and help create safer, healthier and more resilient communities.

For the cost of a tank of gas, or the price of a few of specialty coffees, you can help someone else make it through these tough times.  People like YOU help connect and strengthen our community.  We are asking you to invest in hope and HOPE will invest in the community.

With deep appreciation,

P.S.  Kate and her son came to the Haven of Hope Shelter when her husband was arrested. She had been in an abusive relationship and knew she needed to get herself stabilized. Kate is a “go-getter.” She found herself a job and a place to live. Once on her own, the isolation set in. She realized the human price one pays from living in a domestic violence relationship. Before long, Kate called the shelter again and asked if she could come back? She felt lost and alone.

When Kate returned to HOPE’s shelter, she received emotional support from Advocates, help with getting an Order for Protection and eventually a divorce. She received help getting financial reparations so she could begin seeing a counselor. She learned about the power and control dynamics of domestic violence, financial abuse, and manipulation. She received help improving her credit score.

 "I feel ready now". Kate found herself another job. HOPE helped get her a new apartment and set it up as a home. Kate is now enrolled in classes to become a paralegal.

PLEASE be part of the solution for people like Kate and invest in HOPE today!
