Happy Birthday!

Join us in celebrating the birthdays of a few of the guys in our program!

The first Friday of each month is birthday day at The Hope Center. Residents in our Foundations Life Recovery program who have a birthday that month are celebrated with cake and gifts! The February birthdays are Curtiss Smith, William Putnam and William Neal.

Feb Bday 2013

Each month our dear friend, Stormy, bakes & decorates a delicious cake for our birthday residents! We are so grateful for her baking these delicious cakes each month.


Curtiss will be graduating from the program soon.  During his birthday speech to fellow residents and staff he said he thanks God for bringing him to The Hope Center and he wonders if he would be alive if he hadn’t come here.  He’s looking forward to graduating and has already invited his son and daughter to the graduation service. Please pray for Curtiss as he nears the finish line and prepares to enter back into the world as a changed man.

William Putnam is new to the program and has only been here a few weeks.  Please keep William in your prayers as he adjusts to the program and struggles with depression and other issues as he begins to change his life.

William Neal is a graduate of the program and although our graduates do not usually participate in resident birthday celebrations, William was at The Hope Center for lunch so we were able celebrate his birthday as well.  He said he spent almost 60 years of his life doing things his way and that is what brought him to enroll in the program here.  He is now doing things God’s way and looks forward to the future.

We are so thankful that these men are able to celebrate the birth of the life that God gave them! Each life is valuable and it’s so uplifting to see men who were heading down the path of destruction celebrating their life of victory now!

Please continue to pray for each of these fine men as they are all in different stages of the life recovery process. And remember to pray for all the men who will enter the program and those who are undecided about making the changes in their lives that will benefit them for eternity.
