Village of Hope’s back to school program begins August 1 this year. By donating $25
you helped ensure that 162 children returned that first day with knapsacks filled
with grade appropriate supplies and some healthy treats.
VOH thanks all who contributed to this great program.
In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to
heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.

individuals who regularly access emergency health services due to lack of nutrition.
This program represents a well-organized flow of community resources. Three community
agencies utilize the expertise of their members to successfully meet the dietary
needs of these high risk repeaters.
