Hopeful not Homeless

By PWG Member Jana Gamble

Today @S.I.S. Mentors partnered with the @Midwest Professional Women’s Group and had an amazing trip to Hopeville!! We spent an hour with the Mayor and the residents of Hopeville touring, talking, engaging, and encouraging!! Through our trip we uncovered the truths about the rumors and myths about this group of 45 “homeless” people. We’ve got it wrong folks- they ARE at home! Many of them are there by choice and do not want to leave. You can learn a lot by walking an hour in their shoes. There are 45 residents, only 7 of which are women and the Mayor is a Woman!! How cool is that! The youngest person is about 21 and the oldest is 62. Some of them have flame retardant homes, pets, spouses, families in the St. Louis area, they are skilled, talented, friendly and caring individuals. Several of them stated that this is the first time they have ever had their own home!

When we pulled up a couple of us in the car started to cry. When we left we left changed! We drove away with smiles on our faces and we grateful to make some new friends. This was a life changing experience for my family, my S.I.S. girls and my PWG sisters! We’re so grateful for this opportunity! ❤

Hopeville is in need of many items you may not think of such as: Men’s clothing, batteries (lots of them and all sizes for flashlights, etc.), socks, gloves, propane tanks, blankets, building supplies, phone cards (minute cards) and of course toiletries.

Today make an impact on our community! Show someone that there is Hope and that our community cares today!
