Baby Bottle Blitz

Baby Bottle Blitz

Now is the time to start thinking about your church or organization’s Baby Bottle Campaign!

Hope Unlimited Family Care Center distributes baby bottles Mother’s Day to Father’s Day each year.  People fill bottles with cash, change and checks, with a goal to have each bottle contain $30.  Every penny supports and empowers moms and dads to grow stronger families.  Last year, more than 100 churches and many more businesses helped Hope Unlimited Family Care Center raise about $44,000 for parents on both sides of the Ohio River.

Starting or improving your campaign is easy!  We would love to talk to you about how you can help families by filling a bottle.  Call or email us today!

You Helped Families

You Helped Families

Thank you so much for a strong start to 2018… Because of your generous giving, Hope Unlimited Family Care Center will reach moms and dads who feel alone!

We asked many of you to contribute at the end of last year, setting a goal to see 50 new patients in our prenatal care clinic and give them a first glimpse of their growing babies.  We also wanted to provide an opportunity for restoration for 15 people impacted by abortion.

Your overwhelming response makes us realize we, too are Not Alone when we work to support, empower and love families in our community.  Thank you for partnering with us!

“In the last two years I have been coming to Hope Unlimited Family Care Center, I have spent less than $45 on diapers for both of my children. I am relieved and less stressed! With everything we have been through in the last year, Hope has been a Godsend.”

– Amber Hunt, Paducah mom

“Hope Unlimited [Family Care Center] is opportunity, in the purest sense of the word.   Jobs for Life is an opportunity to hone my skills at job searches and network out… get a leg up.  [I’m] acquiring the skills I’m going to need for future endeavors in the workforce.  It’s a great place.  You can get the help you need there.”

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!

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
