Love Amazing! All year the team of wonderful staff and volunteers have been intentional about what is commanded in John 13:34-35. There are a couple of key directives regarding love in these verses.  God wants us to love others wholly, completely and unconditionally, just like He loves you and me.  Why?  The scripture goes on to say if we do, His Love in us will actually point others to Him. Isn’t that why we exist? Whether they need parenting help, encouragement, healing or to become more confident in a life skill, we are here to walk along side of them. Thank you for helping to make this possible.

This year’s Gala is just around the corner; Tuesday, September 19.  It is going to be one you don’t want to miss. We will be sharing what God has been doing and how His Love Amazing has been at work. We want you to have the opportunity to talk to the staff and volunteers who work with our moms and dads.  You can ask questions and hear how His Love is changing and saving lives. How are we able to do this each and every day? Because our focus is Christ; His Amazing Love and how He “Lavishes his Love on us….” 1 John 3:1

We can’t do this alone.  It’s because of your partnership we are able to touch the lives of so many families. I hope you have made plans to attend this year and bring someone who you would like to introduce to Hope Unlimited Family Care Center.  If you don’t already have your tickets, it’s not too late.  Stop by or call!  We will reserve your seat.

Thank you for your partnership, prayer support and time.  Thank you for being a part of something big God is doing, where the results are truly Amazing!

More Bang for Your Bottle

More Bang for Your Bottle

Breaking news!  The Community Foundation of Western Kentucky’s Fred Paxton Charity Challenge is doubling proceeds from our annual baby bottle campaign this year up to $10,000!  Nearly 3,000 Illinois and Kentucky families took empty baby bottles to fill with change, cash or checks during our fundraiser between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Since Hope Unlimited Family Care Center doesn’t receive federal funds, what you give each year impacts how many moms and dads we can serve.  This year, we’ve challenged you to raise $30 per bottle.  The Charity Challenge match is open until August 31, so you still have time to see your dollars double.

Do you still have a baby bottle? That’s ok.  Whether it’s empty or full, we ask you drop it off at your church or by one of our centers. You will help us be good stewards by returning all bottles. Thank you for giving a little to help a lot!
