Join us for the first annual Festival of Hope! A day of celebration, hope, and generosity.

Saturday, October 16th
@ Pringle Park

This inaugural event is designated as Center for Healing & Hope’s Day of Giving. Funds raised through donations and sponsorships will benefit the affordable healthcare and immigrant advocacy programs Center for Healing & Hope offers. To donate to our Day of Giving simply click the button below and click Festival of Hope under “Apply My Donation To.” If you are new to giving, or just discovering our organization, please feel great knowing your donations stay right here in the community and assist with things like: covering costs for monthly diabetes program fees for those unable to pay, allowing immigrants to get a GRID card free of charge, providing financial assistance for food, housing or utility bills for those facing economic hardships, providing urgent care services for those unable to pay, and allowing our organization to not only sustain these programs but to grow in order to continue bridging the gap to equitable care and advocacy for all.
