PATTY'S HOPE IS OPENING A THRIFT STORE
Patty’s Hope has been given an opportunity to trial a thrift store! Hill City Church has offered us an affordable start-up space to do this. It is our hope that this thrift store could support our mission in a few different ways. We picture this being a safe place that can potentially offer employment to our moms, help them build new life skills and have an opportunity for community to form while sorting clothes or hanging out with other volunteers. It would be a wonderful blessing to provide employment so moms can have an income without the fear of being fired for upcoming court hearing or visits with their child. The thrift store would also be a funding stream for our housing program and raise awareness for foster care and caring for the biological families.
There is a lot that needs to happen to make this a reality, but we are excited and praying the Lord will provide!
If you can help in any of these ways we would love to hear from you.
