Why We Love This Affiliate
We love that Expect Hope is a supportive housing residence located in a zip code with one of the highest rates of abortion (45%) and that they are meeting the physical, social, and emotional needs of women facing unplanned pregnancies.
When I first came into the home, it was filled with genuine love and compassion and a lot of support....In light of what I've learned at Expect Hope, my view of God is that He's a provider and a sustainer and I'm very grateful that He allowed me to have this second chance.
This year's Spring Benefit was the first one we've held in person since 2019! We loved celebrating community with everyone together in one room.
As the challenges of the pandemic continue, we decided to focus on biblical hope and how our affiliate partners remain beacons of hope in our city.
