Just a few months ago, we were facing one of the worst crises we’ve ever had – the possibility that we might have to close down our Hope Gardens Family Center. Thankfully, many generous donors stepped up to the need and helped us raise $3.8 million, even more than our original goal! To celebrate and thank those who played a crucial part in saving Hope Gardens, we threw a party last weekend, thanks in part to generous sponsorship from Home Depot and Dandy Don’s Ice Cream. Guests were able to tour Hope Gardens, and meet the moms and children that they saved from returning to the streets of Skid Row.
We hope you will please take a minute to check out this video of highlights from the event, and to hear from one of our loyal volunteers, NCIS’ Pauley Perette!
