Looking Back and Looking Forward
WOW, 2019 HAS BEEN QUITE THE SPECTACULAR YEAR FOR A DOOR OF HOPE!
We want to reach out to thank each and every one of you who helped us; whether that was donating your time and efforts to spreading the word, partnering with us, donating to our cause, or becoming one of our many licensed foster families. We couldn’t have done it without YOU!
Your time and efforts have helped us not only to spread the word of A Door of Hope all over Tampa, but also assisted in placing so many children in need! We’d like to take a moment to reflect on all the fantastic accomplishments we’ve made this year. From celebrating Foster Care Month in May to our wonderful turnout at A Night of Hope; thank you! We sincerely wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Let’s take a look back at some of our incredible accomplishments!
201 FAMILIES ATTENDED 12 CHURCH-HOSTED ORIENTATIONS IN 2019
Way up from 2018! Our goal for 2020 is 300 families attending 18 orientation classes.
We already have 5 orientation classes scheduled for 2020 through April!
57 NEW FAMILIES LICENSED IN 2019
Our goal for 2020 is 80 new foster families!
168 CURRENT ACTIVE FOSTER FAMILIES
That’s up more than 50% from a year ago!
Our goal for 2020 is 208 active foster families.
REMEMBER JOJO FROM THE VIDEO ABOVE?
All year, and especially during the holiday season, it’s not easy being a foster child. It’s supposed to be a time of year where you’re safe and surrounded by your family in your own home, however, for children like JoJo all over Tampa, it’s not always the reality. Sights and sounds that are supposed to be magical, unfortunately replaced with the sights and sounds of sirens and frantic cries.
Just as A Door of Hope helps children in crisis, such as JoJo represented in the short film, we are asking for your help to continue to assist children as we step into 2020 and make their new year a little bit brighter! Help us get even closer to our goal of reaching 300 homes by 2023 and continue to help A Door of Hope find homes for children like JoJo a place to stay during the holiday season.
