Client Spotlight: Hope For Families

Hope for Families was formed in 2014 to respond to needy families in Naples. Its mission is to equip, educate, and empower families to achieve a higher quality of life and greater sense of community. It is the organization’s vision to strengthen family relations by providing effective resources to those in need.

Hope for Families is currently run by a Board of Directors, led by Ruth Oris. Along with the Board, a group of faithful volunteers give their time and talents to offer adult education to members of the community. Hope for Families works to build and maintain a thriving community where members can not only take care of themselves but also help others to develop into self-sufficiency.

The following classes improve individuals’ capabilities to become successful members in our community:

  • English
  • Budgeting
  • Computer Skills
  • Job Interview Skills

The team at Soukup Strategic Solutions has been working with Hope for Families on building a fundraising program, expanding awareness, and developing a sustainable way to monitor program success.

Recently, Hope for Families held its first ever Friendraiser, where Board members invited their personal contacts to come learn about this cause close to their hearts. Guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks at Joe’s Diner, all while learning about how they can make a difference through this organization by providing much needed programs to members of the community.
