Easter Story Walk

This weekend we had the chance to bring twelve of our HFK kids to an Easter Story Walk put on by First Baptist Church! The kids played games, got their faces painted, ate some yummy snacks, and went through six rooms that each told a different part of the true story of Easter. Thank you…

Christmas Club Hope was amazing – great food, lots of smiles and an abundance of presents! Toys for Tots blessed HFK with so many! If you have a special HFK child or family you’d like to follow up with on a personal visit, consider going “shopping” at the office – there are plenty of toys…

Hope Happens: Reunited

A family that had been connected to Hope for Kids suddenly moved and went off the radar about 6 months ago. This was a family of 4, and one that I had invested huge amounts of prayer and effort into. They felt like family, and after they moved and we didn’t know where to, I…
