At Hope 1312 Collective, we engage the Church and community to enter the story of child welfare by providing tangible Hope for children in hard places.
Our efforts were launched in 2014 by a small group of community members, social workers, foster parents, youth pastors, business executives, who were tired of seeing kids linger in the foster care system and kids from hard places continue to struggle to find Hope. We wanted to see resources leveraged for meaningful impact, see the church truly be the church, and lives changed through an encounter with Hope.
The Role of the Collective:
We, as the collective, have a responsibility to engage in the child welfare system and create lasting change in the lives of at risk children in our community. There is Hope for children in hard places, but we have to work together.
