Here's What's Happening at the HandUP Foundation:
If you missed out on this year's first annual dinner cruise, be sure to catch it next year! We had a wonderful night raising money for the Renewed Hope Women's Home! Thank you to everyone who came and supported!
Yesterday the Central PA Chamber of Commerce helped HandUP celebrate the opening of the Renewed Hope Women's Home with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new venture will provide a 4-6 month program in a home environment that focuses on emotional healing, counseling, education, employment and life skills training. The mission is "To shelter, minister, model, encourage and equip women with the tools for personal growth while leading the lost to Christ's love and acceptance." RHWH is expecting its first residents later this month, and they are looking for volunteers and donations. For more information, contact Director Patti Snyder at 570-742-3000 ext. 214 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intern Abbie and AmeriCorps member, Terrayn went to the Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village Volunteer Opportunities Fair to speak about HandUP's programs and many volunteer opportunities. For more volunteer opportunities, check our Get Involved webpage!
