An unforseen emergency
WHO WE SERVE:
Hope Station helps individuals who are hard working, productive members of our community, yet struggling financially to pay their bills. They are trying to make ends meet while working lower paying jobs or are trying to recover from a financial set back do to a crisis. They are not using government programs that are funded by your tax dollars.
Prospective clients will be screened to determine their eligibility. Please note that services will not be available to walk-ins or persons receiving government assistance.
2. By paying a monthly participation fee
The $25 fee is minimal, yet necessary, for providing a sense of ownership - while helping to pay for a portion of the organization’s expenses.
3. By volunteering
All clients in the program are required to volunteer two hours per month to the program. The activites are easy and enjoyable and can be performed by anyone regardless of their physical and skill level.
Volunteer hours help keep expenses down and the program running efficiently, while creating a sense of responsibility on the part of the clients.
It is our belief that paying a small fee and volunteering just two hours
a month retains one's dignity. It is a "hand-up" rather than a "hand-out."
The volunteering aspect of our program is so enjoyable that many families continue to come back to help long after they are off the program. It feels good to give back to an organization that has helped one in their own time of need.
