Director’s Desk

It’s been a year!  And, as I think about this past year, as I’ve sat in the executive director’s chair, there have been so many times I have had the opportunity to watch His Love Amazing touch families throughout our communities, both in Paducah and Metropolis.

In May, we cut the ribbon on our newly renovated Metropolis location.  Many of our Massac County friends and partners took a tour of the changes.  The renovations create more space for parents to learn and more room for the community to shop in Hope’s Closet Community Store.  Across the river in Paducah, the Mayor and Judge Executive National Day of Prayer Breakfast brought business owners, church leaders and civic groups together to focus on community.  Organizers chose to make Hope Unlimited Family Care Center the beneficiary of this year’s event.

We’re not finished partnering yet, either!  Our Jobs for Life program was featured during the Housing Authority of Paducah Community Day, where Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s Rick Tilley built relationships with under-employed and unemployed men and women.  We’re excited to partner with Heartland Cares, Inc. again this year for National HIV Testing Day.

We all play an important role in our community’s success!  We all long to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.  Thank you for joining us to help show Love Amazing to both sides of the river.

– Nicole Farley, Executive Director

 

How You Can Help

How You Can Help

You may know about Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s community store, Hope’s Closet, but do you know how vital it is to our ministry?  All sales from both locations in Metropolis and Paducah go directly to our operating budget.  Last year alone, Hope’s Closet helped raise 8% of our budget!  When you shop you help us support and empower moms and dads to grow stronger families!

Here’s a great opportunity to do just that!  We’re launching special shopping hours this summer for two Super Saturdays.  Shop Hope’s Closet – Metropolis July 8 and August 12 from 10 until 3 PM.

The store also serves as a safe place to make connections.  Our volunteers get to know shoppers, and, in so doing, invite them to try Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s free and confidential services.  We’re able to help so many more families, just by operating the store.  We need store volunteers in Paducah and Metropolis any time, especially Mondays from 10-1 PM or 1-4 PM.    Call one of our centers to find out more or start an online application at hopeunlimitedfcc.org/volunteer.
