Happy Birthday!

The first Friday of each month is birthday month at The Hope Center!

We love to celebrate another year of life each month for the residents in our Foundations Life Recovery program. And we love the delicious cake made each month by our friend, Stormy!


In October we celebrated with Mark, John & David. Mark and John have been previously enrolled in the program and are glad to be back and hoping to finish strong this time.
