“HOPE News” represents the four components of our organization: Chaplaincy, Pre-Release, Aftercare, and Diversion. In each issue, you’ll learn about recent happenings at HOPE, as well as current and upcoming news and events.

“HOPE e-News” will be available on our website, our Facebook page, and emailed out to anyone requesting to be on our mailing list. If you would like to be added to the e-newsletter mailing list or if you have suggestions for “HOPE News,” please feel free to contact Jody Raeford.
