Hope House Annual Report FY 2012

Page 1

Dear Friends, As we look back on our 29th year of serving the community, we reflect on what it is we really have to commemorate. We live in hope every day because we accomplish something remarkable every day. In fact, last year we were able to achieve the following: • 1,123 women and children were given protection in our shelters—we saved lives. • Our Court Advocates were present to support survivors in 7,837 cases. • We continued to grow our Cultural Competency Initiative, focusing on diversity training with staff and volunteers. • We began a Trauma Informed Care Training. In a time of economic downturn, we overcame funding challenges to maintain programs and provide quality services. We met client needs in a comprehensive, meaningful way. We strove to engage survivors and inspire them to transform their lives. We are privileged to do this work each and every day. Without the support of our community and friends, our volunteers and donors, more lives would be at stake. The numbers in this report speak for themselves. But our work is about much more than numbers—it is about transformation. It’s about giving hope. Next year marks our 30th anniversary of bringing hope to the community. We are so grateful to be celebrating with you. Sara Welch, Board Chairman MaryAnne Metheny, CEO
