From the group at HPP to the Community:
Thanks to everyone who helped make Our Light, Our House an unprecedented success last month! With your help, Homeless Prenatal Prevention – or HPP for short, raised over $215,000 to help break the cycle of childhood poverty. We are over the moon with gratitude for our planning committee, sponsors, silent auction donors and guests. HPP was delighted to honor both the Family Treatment Court (FTC), a collaborative drug court for parents involved in child welfare, and FTC’s first graduate, Eli Parson, who is now a Case Manager at HPP!
OUR WORK GROUP has donated and volunteered with this amazing group. Their success is so gratifying. If you’d like to make a HUGE difference for a family, you can volunteer here or donate. – the editor
HONORING FATHERS! For the past few years, HPP has been offering a very successful Fatherhood Group. This weekly workshop offers a safe and comfortable space for fathers – especially those who are involved with the child welfare system – to discuss ways to become more engaged and active in their children’s lives. Fatherhood Group was launched and is led by two single-fathers, both of whom successfully reunified with their children after system involvement. Learning from one another, participants develop greater confidence and comfort in addressing everything from child custody status to parenting styles and childcare. Since its launch in 2010, over 400 fathers have participated in HPP’s Fatherhood Group. Happy Father’s Day! If you’re still thinking of a gift idea for a great dad in your life, consider making a donation in his name to benefit HPP’s Fatherhood Group!
