There are many nonprofit organizations in Bradenton and the surrounding area. Each one is doing incredible work to support our community by helping those less fortunate, promoting the arts, providing education, and more.
During our nonprofit spotlight series, we’ll highlight information about a different local nonprofit each week. This week, we were thrilled to chat with Hope 4 Communities to learn more about their mission and how we can help. Here’s what they had to say.
Can you tell us a little bit about your mission and how you help to support our community?
Our Mission is to ensure that all children who are homeless and in need are prepared for school by initiating Day4Hope events, creating outreach opportunities, and coaching faith-based organizations to develop relationships with the children and families we serve.
Can you describe what you do to support our community?
Hope 4 Communities helped over 3,000 homeless and at-risk kids be ready to go back to school in 2021 with our Day4Hope. This was our 13th annual summer and our efforts spanned over 20 events
We partner with local churches to help these kids begin the first day of school on an even playing field with their peers. They receive school supplies, care packages, food, as well as a haircut, a medical and dental checkup, an eye exam, diabetes screening, and family photos.
We believe that children who are prepared will want to do well in school, so our mission helps support better school attendance, better grades, and, over time, rising these children up to be leaders in our community.
We’re all about providing continued hope and positive relationships to help change the children’s circumstances and lives over the long term.
