A Birthday Party for Women of Hope!
This month, New Hope threw a birthday party for EVERYONE at Women of Hope. It ended up being a great party, despite a rocky start. Several of the leaders got sick and couldn't make it. Other members came out of the woodwork to help and made it a fun and beautiful occasion. Jeni Boonstra gave a moving and inspiring testimonial. 
The Squad's Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
Thanks to everyone who came out to support The Squad at the Friday, January 20th Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser at Bridgeway Church. The Squad has been raising money to attend a retreat at Camp Orchard Hill in Pennsylvania. There will be guest speakers, a live band, different activities and the opportunity to meet other teens. This will be the first retreat for many of The Squad's participants. We are only $200 away from reaching our goal! Stay tuned!
