Love Amazing in 2017!

You pnicole-farleyartnered 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.

Our Awesome Volunteers!

Our Awesome Volunteers!

volunteersDid you know many young people spend their summer vacation volunteering in our community stores?  Several exceptional kids sorted, cleaned and hung items in both Paducah and Metropolis.  They gave more than 135 hours of their time! We also had a group of 20 youth come from Concord United Methodist Church to work with us.

Hope springs eternal, so they say.  If you drive by our Paducah center on 11th Street, you’ll see this lived out before you in our renovated Family Garden!

This fresh, inviting space was created through a truly collaborative effort.  Families bought memorialized bricks for the path, two churches provided the financial backing and the labor needed for the greenery.  Even Paducah’s Mayor Gayle Kaler and James Sanders Nursery made gifts to round out the garden.

We’ve already seen parents rest under our tree.  Other families have had a chance to reflect in the garden.  Family felt welcome.  We invite YOU to enjoy the Family Garden and help it grow!
