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.
After she retired, Metropolis volunteer Susan Hines was looking for an opportunity to give her time. She wanted to invest in an organization that matched her Christian values. Susan found Hope Unlimited Family Care Center! “I love volunteering at [the Metropolis location]. I’ve grown to really care for the clientele and all of the ladies I’ve been blessed to work with.” Susan also says she’s grateful to God Hope Unlimited Family Care Center provides a much needed service to families.
The medical care I have received at the [prenatal care] clinic has been amazing! I have loved getting a chance to get to know Steph [the sonographer] and Debbie [the nurse manager], and that they have gotten to know us, as well!” – Nikki Brinkley and Justin Scott, Paducah parents
I have always felt welcome and loved here. I highly recommend [Hope Unlimited Family Care Center] to any family. You will find help, acceptance and experience tremendous growth in your life. Thank you, Hope, for all you do.” – Bethany McLane, Metropolis parent
Spring is the season of growth, and we are certainly growing our services here at Hope Unlimited Family Care Center. Our medical team is slated to expand our current walk-in pregnancy test services to include limited sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing. Gonorrhea and Chlamydia screening will be confidential and available to men, women & teens.
In addition to promoting good health and sexual integrity education, this service will also allow Hope Unlimited Family Care Center to reach men, women and teens who may not normally step foot into our center. We hope to empower teens, dads, and moms to make changes promoting healthier families now and in the future.
