LEnd a Hand
ou can help homeless single mothers and
Ycanchildren
find their way to wholeness. You
do that by volunteering to help Hannah's

Hope Ministries. The mission of Hannah's
Hope Ministries (formerly Bridge of Hope Berks County) is to
identify and proactively address the needs of homeless women
and children in order to restore them to physical, emotional and
spiritual wholeness. This is done by "meeting the women where
they are"; by empowering women to address their individual
needs, strengths and challenges. Case Management Services and
some financial assistance (depending on their needs) can then
provide guidance and accountability to help keep them on track
and make truly lasting changes in their lives.

Move-in and Set-up of the Home: We will
need help with everything from packing/
unpacking and loading/unloading the trucks
and setting up the kitchen and making the
beds (although the mothers and children will do that once they
are moved in!).
Teaching our Mothers about Life Skills: Our mothers will be
required to attend classes on topics including but not limited to
parenting, money management/financial education, nutrition,
employment, housing issues and legal issues. Additionally, we
will be looking for help with teaching the women and children
about life skills such as basic table manners and other forms of
etiquette. If you have expertise in any of these areas, we would
love to have you address our mothers about one or more of
these topics.

Hannah's Hope Ministries is excited to announce that we are in
the process of purchasing a home on Upland Avenue in Reading.
This home will be used to house six families, and it will enable
these families to have 24/7 support in a loving and constant care
environment.

Bible Studies: Our mothers will be attending weekly Bible
Studies and facilitators will be needed.

We are very much a volunteer-driven organization. We would
not be able to serve our families without our wonderful volunteers.
With the addition of the home to the services we offer, we have
need for even more volunteers. Opportunities include:

Our families will be required to participate in Community
Service. We will need someone who could work with agencies
such as Voice Up!, the Holleran Center and the United Way to
develop and coordinate these opportunities.

Children's Programs: Hannah's Hope Ministries is looking for
volunteers to facilitate children's programs, tutor and babysit
while mothers are in their workshops.
