Homes Giving Hope Receives $7,481.00 for Men’s Home

Written by Paul R. Kopenkoskey on . Posted in Local

bovenRockford-based Homes Giving Hope, a Christian nonprofit Sara and Brian Boven and Kay Wood co-founded for persons with disabilities, recently received $7,418.00 from Wolverine World Wide's Rockford area retail show store Rockford Footwear Depot.

Over the course of one month, the Footwear Depot raised this money by offering a discount to any shopper who made a $5.00 donation. One shopper at a time added up to a generous gift that will help cover the operating costs for the recently opened men's home.

"I am amazed by the community's response to this fundraiser," said Sara Boven, executive director of Homes Giving Hope. "Hundreds of shoppers participated in supporting us. In the meantime, many new individuals were able to learn about Homes Giving Hope for the first time. This is huge for an organization like ours."

Most young adults with mild intellectual and developmental disabilities never get to experience independent living. Homes Giving Hope provides Christ-Centered, quality homes with resident assistants, enabling young adults with unique abilities can grow in their independence and live a fulfilling life.

Homes Giving Hope provides housing opportunities, matching cohesive roommates and helps to build a broader community where friends gather. Young adults plan and attend gatherings, avoiding the isolation. For more information, visit www.homesgivinghope.org
