I am thrilled to be celebrating this year as my 25th anniversary in Real Estate!
Since I announced this milestone of mine, I have received many kind words, thank you’s, and reiterated support from those whom I have met along the way. In honor of my celebration and the love I have received, I have decided that I want to share the feeling of warmth and encouragement that you all have given me and I have found an organization with a great cause that I feel strongly about supporting. It is called The Family Tree House of Hope.
The House of Hope is an amazing program in Englewood, Colorado that caters specifically to homeless women with children. They are dedicated to providing a safe shelter as well as resources for families that are overwhelmed with the daily struggle of where to stay the night, find their next meal, or have a safe place to stay while they begin to get back on to their feet.
House of Hope’s basic goal is to provide food, shelter and a safe environment to the ever-increasing number of homeless families and single mothers. The families work with the staff and a variety of community agencies to complete the goals outlined in their plans, which often include applying for housing programs, getting children into school and daycare, obtaining employment, achieving a GED, or attending a job training program. During their stay they also have the opportunity to meet individually with an on-site therapist and also attend life-skills workshops.
What makes this organization unique:
- The only shelter for homeless families in Arapahoe County
- Case management services to assist families with becoming self-sufficient
- Assistance with obtaining housing employment, education, job-skills training and childcare
- Families can stay for up to 90 days
- On-site therapist
- On-site health clinic staffed by volunteer doctors and nurses
- Community referrals
