Each year, community leaders gather to be a part of 10-month long program to learn all about Seminole County. Beginning in August 2016, this program, Leadership Seminole, welcomed class number 26. For the 2016/2017 year, HOPE was able to send their Marketing Coordinator, DeAnn Gurney, through the class, where she gained invaluable information about Seminole County and formed lasting relationships with fellow community leaders.
Each class selects a “Legacy Project” to help a local non-profit. Class 26 chose HOPE Helps, Inc. for their Legacy project and donated more than $40,000 in cash and in-kind donations and contributed more than 250 volunteer hours. Their efforts helped renovate and furnish HOPE’s recently expanded facilities at 812 Eyrie Drive. HOPE is thankful to have the support of such a great group of community leaders and look forward to being able to continue to help families in crisis in Seminole County in our new spaces.
