Hi friends and family!
I am so excited and honored to once again be a member of Project Hope’s Boston Marathon Team!
Since becoming involved with this incredible organization in various ways throughout the past year, I am confident in saying that the work Project Hope does is SO important and empowering. Their holistic approach to assisting low-income women and families throughout the City of Boston is absolutely vital to breaking the cycle of poverty and implementing positive change within some of our most trying communities.
Combating these social issues is of course an ongoing effort and something I have fully committed myself to, both in and outside of my career. I cannot wait to continue cultivating a deeper relationship with Project Hope this marathon season and hope that you will join me in doing the same!
I kindly ask that you take a moment to read more about Project Hope below and will consider making a donation to support their efforts. Big or small, any amount does make a difference.
Thank you all so much for your generosity and unwavering support! Already counting down the days to Marathon Monday!
More about Project Hope:
Project Hope is a multi-service agency at the forefront of efforts in Boston to move families up and out of poverty. It provides low-income women with children access to education, jobs, housing, and emergency services; fosters their personal transformation; and works for broader systems change.
Located in the Dudley neighborhood, one of Boston’s poorest, Project Hope has worked in partnership with families since 1981. The agency was founded by The Little Sisters of the Assumption, who, in response to the family housing crisis of the 1980’s, established one of the first emergency family shelters in the state and launched Project Hope.
Today the agency offers an array of direct services, including temporary housing, housing search assistance, adult basic education, childcare and job training, to assist families in gaining the resources and skills to overcome homelessness and poverty. Empowering homeless and low-income families in Dorchester and Roxbury for 30 years is Project Hope's greatest achievement.
