The KIND Program
The KIND Program (Kitting In a New Direction) in which we partner with another local nonprofit Seniors Creating Art (SCA). SCA offers free 4 to 8 week long art programs to senior citizens. Senior participants meet in local community centers, retirement centers, senior centers, etc. to participate in art classes where atmosphere of creativity hope and purpose are abundant. In this collaborative program between SCA and H.O.P.E, senior citizens in the communities in which SCA serves will meet a few times per year to participate in classes in order to learn to crochet and/or knit gloves, hats, scarves, and/or blankets that can then be donated to homeless individuals in the same community. This program will provide purpose and even therapy to aging seniors whilst also filling a need among homeless individuals and families.
