Every week we like to spotlight a local charity, group, or person who is doing awesome things in the community. This week we wanted to shine some light on Heart of Hope Maternity Home.

What They Do: This organization helps young pregnant women ages 11-23 by providing a safe refuge to focus on their emotional, physical, educational, and spiritual well-being, as stated on their website.

How You Can Volunteer: They have multiple volunteer opportunities in that will cater to their resident care, ministry care, and for special events. To find more information on the volunteer opportunities click here.
