Our Community Center for Boys and Girls hosts an after-school program and a summer camp program. We primarily work with families who are under the federal poverty line. The United Way funding will enable us to continue serving children ages 6-12 in our Community Center. It will continue providing a safe place to advance academically, to develop socially, and to have fun!
Our Social Services department continues to help people in times of financial burden with rent, utilities, food, and Christmas assistance. United Way funding will help Spalding county residents keep their heat on, keep their lights, keep food on the table, and ensure that they do not need to use our House of Hope Emergency Homeless Shelter.
The House of Hope will continue to operate every day of this year. The funding received helps us ensure that residents have warm meals, a warm, clean, and homey place to stay, and the case management assistance needed to get them to self-sufficiency.
