Proceeds from the Family Reunion will go to support Hope Street in the following areas

honor our past

Acorn Fund

From the beginning Hope Street has provided a safe home for men and women to grow and flourish. The Acorn Fund was established to protect members entering Hope Street from financially vulnerable situations that might delay initial membership payments.  Monthly Membership is a part of living at Hope Street, it is $425 for a Single Adult and $525 for a Family. We do not want somebody’s current financial situation to be a barrier. In these special situations, we supplement 1-3 months of membership fee with our Acorn Fund.

support our present

Baby Acorn Fund

Just over five years ago kids joined the Hope Street census. Experience taught us that people grow best inside of community, in particular, family units. So we began accepting moms and dads with their kiddos. We do not charge a membership fee for kids to live at Hope Street, however, that loss of income has to be made up somewhere. It costs $150 per month for a kid to stay at Hope Street, the Baby Acorn Fund helps supplement this cost without adding a financial burden to Hope Street parents. 

invest in our future

Shechem

There is something special about a place that keeps producing powerful stories. Hope Street has invested in the 53206 zip code for 20 years by providing a safe and nurturing environment for men, women and children to live, learn and develop new habits. Our members have challenged us to do more by being a bigger part of the greater community’s flourishing. Shechem is a Community Center on 26th and Capitol - it will be an extension of Hope Street and be home to a gymnasium, classroom and event space, cafe and more. It will be an on-ramp for building community.
