Project HOPE (formerly Project One)

Update—June 2020

It’s time! We’re ready to safely move ahead to serve our community in the same spirit of compassion and hands-on love as we always have. Let’s make the summer of 2020 a summer of serving.  Here are two exciting developments regarding Project One.

The First Development: Completing Projects In June  

We have identified 12 projects as low risk projects (they are outside, need volunteer teams of 10 or less, will have minimal contact with lower risk homeowner). The projects vary from easy (yard clean up and mulch spreading) to hefty (house painting, mobile home skirt installation, fencing).

These projects will be completed by Project Leaders and volunteer teams consisting of people that are already comfortable working with each other. This could be families, a group of close friends or any group (2 or more) that will work outside with each other to complete a project. Teams would be expected to exercise wisdom in order to keep the team and those they are serving healthy (masks, sanitizing, etc.).  Project Leaders will determine the schedule (doesn’t have to be a Saturday) for completion which can be spread over several days.

If you have a team, we have a project! If you need a team, talk to those closest to you. Email [email protected] to get a complete list and sign up to serve someone who really needs some love, especially now.

We also have 27 more projects for July and August…so if you can put together a team for later—please let us know now so you’ll be ready.

The Second Development: Project One has a new name and a new approach. It’s called Project HOPE.

Project HOPE: Here’s how it works.

Apply to Project HOPE for funding to complete a new project for someone you know. You will serve as the Project Leader to nominate a new project, put together a team of volunteers and complete the project. The Project HOPE Directors team will empower you by providing funding (if needed and upon approval) and expertise (consulting or in-person if needed) along the way to make sure that you have what you need to love YOUR neighbor. You will communicate with the one you’re serving, apply for funding if needed (online or email form), mobilize your team, set your schedule, purchase the materials (we have vendor suggestions) and complete the project. We also want to help you celebrate your service by providing a photo gallery, an end of the year celebration event and a way to tell your story (such as a video).

We currently have $5000 for June projects so submit your Project HOPE Project Nomination Form ASAP. To nominate a project, email [email protected].

It’s YOUR neighbor so bringing your team of neighbors, friends and family to help serve makes sense and provides the maximum flexibility. To get a Project HOPE nomination form, email [email protected].

Let’s make the summer of 2020 a summer of loving by serving.
