Last month, we announced the Hope House of Central Illinois capital campaign was suspended due to the tornado relief efforts in Taylorville, where Hope House will be built. We had already received some preliminary commitments and had just mailed hundreds of brochures and letters when the tornado ripped through our community. We knew we needed to pause what we were doing to focus on the more immediate needs.
We are now excited to let you know our campaign has resumed! If you received a mailing in late November, you can anticipate a call from one of our campaign team members to chat about how you can get involved. We currently have commitments of nearly $135,000 of the $350,250 needed to begin the building process.
We need your help! Can you sacrificially give and help us break ground soon? The sooner we break ground and begin building, the sooner we are able to invite families grieving the loss of a child to come to Hope House and find refuge with hope as they heal.
