Hope Week is a unique community-wide, week-long series of events and activities designed to salute and highlight the spirit of Hope and its importance in the life of our community. Hope Week is rooted in the belief that acts of goodwill are virtually always related to more beneficial life outcomes. It takes place annually the week that spans from the end of September to the beginning of October. 

Anyone can be a part of Hope Week.

Expressions and demonstrations of Hope vary greatly, and that variety is encouraged during the week. Past events have involved groups and individuals in a variety of activities that included: household item collection for the Women's Crisis Center, food drives for the Food Bank, job fairs, pet adoptions, mentoring by sororities at area schools, hopeful art exhibitions, carnivals for special needs children, self esteem seminars for girls, knitting & crocheting, office projects at area non-profits, and testimonies of hope from cancer survivors.  The projects have been as varied as the groups involved.  The one constant has been and continues to be the emphasis on celebrating and fostering Hope.
