Love Amazing in 2017!
You partnered with us to reach at least 168 new moms and dads this year. Thank you! In January alone, we served 15 new moms and dads along with our regular clients. Parents made 200 appointments; 154 of them showed up. That is 77% of appointments kept! This tells me clients are finding value and support. I want you to know your investment of prayer, finances and support is making an impact.
Ephesians 3:20-21 says, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus througout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Emphasis added.)
Our greatest need? Prayer! We are open four days a week in Paducah and three in Metropolis. Will you be one of those who partners with us and says, “Yes! I will pray on a certain day at a certain time.” If so, please let us know. We are being intentional in having every hour covered in prayer.
Hope Unlimited Family Care Center is you, our team and the community. Love Amazing is what we have to give. Please help us spread the word to those in your circle of influence. Know there is a place where moms and dads can find the support and resources they need. Together, we impact one family today and generations for years to come.
Your generosity certainly has created a bright new year! At the end of 2016, we set a goal to raise $62,000 to help 168 new parents. By the time we opened our center in January, you had already surpassed that amount! Your gifts, online and by mail, totaled $62,086. Thank you!
Your dollars are already making a difference! The very first week we opened in January, several parents came into the building needing immediate help. One woman needed a pregnancy test. Two more families needed material help right away. Seven students participated in court-ordered parenting classes. Our clinic cared for three expectant parents.
We cannot wait to share the success these families will enjoy, as we continue our work together!

Hope Unlimited Family Care Center is getting extra help from our business partners this year!
River 2 River Fitness, located in Metropolis and Paducah, recently hosted a group work-out and outreach event we called “Strong Fathers = Strong Families.” The free event provided an opportunity for dads to get healthy with their loved ones while learning about what Hope Unlimited Family Care Center offers for fathers.
“Hope Unlimited has a shared value system with our company. Community is at the center of everything we do. To us, community means family.”
Howell coaching a client at River 2 River Fitness
River 2 River Fitness Owner Patrick Howell is a father, himself. That’s one of the reasons he’s drawn to the free and confidential services Hope Unlimited Family Care Center has for dads. “I would go so far as to say a fit dad – healthy and present – is overlooked these days. Young dads – like 30 to 40 years old – are physically unable to play with their kids. Being fit means you’re a role model and able to fully participate as parent.”
