Each of our homeless neighbors is a human being just like you and me and they have their own story and their own needs. I am so proud of all the great work Hope Cooperative does to help these individuals; getting to know their story and working tirelessly to get them the support they need to improve their lives and get off the streets. I am honored to join the Board and support the organization as it continues to do the important work it does every day.”
