Community of Hope

Creating change through relationship.

We are creating small communities of hope where young adults who have experienced foster care connect weekly with a committed group of volunteer mentors. Young people look forward to coming to their Community because it is a place of peace and belonging. The youth-led partnership promotes new experiences through action, love and lasting relationships.

One hour a week changes everything.

"Transitioning to adulthood isn't easy, especially when you don't have the greatest support. My 20's have been nothing but unanswered questions and a guessing game, hoping that I make the right decisions while trying to figure out who I am. I was reluctant at first to join Open Table. But now I can't see my life without them. I have a group of people I can turn to for answers and guidance. We're all different colors, backgrounds, and characters, but somehow we all work. I love my new family and they love me too. They show me support and make sure to check on me when I'm not having the greatest day. I know I'm never alone because I have a support system of 7 backing me up. I'm so grateful for Amber Donovan and Community of Hope coming into my life." -young adult
