On Thursday, a small group from the KYC took a field trip to Hope House! Hope House operates in Wolfeboro to help families living in the Governor Wentworth Regional School District and experiencing homelessness make sustainable transitions. We were greeted by Hope House, Philanthropy Officer, Jeannie Burns. Burns shared some important facts about homelessness in NH and had some great advise to help our students support others. Hope House provides diverse support to help local families make successful and sustainable steps.
The KYC has embarked upon ‘Project Linus,’ an effort through which we will make 15-20 tied fleece blankets to contribute to Hope House. During our Thursday visit, we presented eleven blankets to Burns, which she accepted with gratitude on behalf of Hope House. The blankets will be presented to Hope House residents throughout the colder months. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to Hope House’s mission in this small way!
