The Hancock County Community Foundation and the Rotary Club of Greenfield recently awarded Hancock County Hope House a $2,000 grant. HCCF matched dollar for dollar the money raised by the Rotary Club of Greenfield at their Steak‘n Bake’n Raffle last fall. The Hancock County Hope House provides hope to the community, while strengthening individuals and families on their journey to self-sufficiency. The face of the homeless individual and family looks different in our community and many would be blind to the existence of this issue in our own backyards. The clients Hope House serve find themselves in their situation for a variety of reasons and end up being dependent upon other resources in our community to get their feet back on the ground.
The grant dollars awarded to the Hancock County Hope House will fund programs that sustain citizens within the community. Hope House’s ability to create and nurture a quick path to self-sufficiency honors and respects all of the private and public resources that are given to organizations in our community that help individuals and families live a rich and productive life. Hancock County Hope House strongly adheres to the thought that “a rising tide lifts all ships” and are proud to be a part of making that happen in our community.
HCCF works with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent funds called endowments. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. HCCF has granted over $8.7 million since its inception in 1992.
