The Women of Hope are currently setting up for their 10th annual Women of Hope gala. This is their biggest fundraiser and what allows them to help and change the lives of all the women they serve at the hope recovery center.
“I was in a place where i'd given up hope and that was scary," says Amy Gilbert.
The hope recovery center helps women who have lost everything: like their home, their children, and even control of their life.
When no one else believes in these women, the hope center does.
“I see women come in broken, just broken, and i see them begin to find hope," says Lisa Clements.
Amy Gilbert and Grace Collins are just a couple examples of women who's lives have been transformed after going through the 12 month faith based recovery program.
“I've been sober for 8 months off street drugs and mental illness drugs. I'm able to function," says Grace Collins.
This annual gala is what allows them to serve all these women. It raises enough money to help them get through the program for a whole year.
The gala is completely sold out there will be more than 500 people filling these seats tonight but those who still want to be involved and donate can visit the hope store or they can donate through venmo at hope-recovery.
