Did You Know

 

that over a quarter of Carlisle children live below the federal poverty line? At Hope Station, we fight against the effects that this poverty has on our community. In fulfilling our mission, we offer a catalog of programs and events that are detailed herein.

In past two years, we have undergone a substantial transition and have refined our strategic direction. This includes refocusing our work toward enhancing the life of residents through expansion of our programming; building an internal culture of sustainability and growth in organization development; and targeting our efforts through data driven outcomes and standards.

Through all of this, Hope Station still exists for the reasons it always has: As hope for our community. We want more for the children and families in our neighborhood. Our community offers so much and we firmly believe that our vision is achievable. With that we present this our annual report for the 2018-19 Fiscal Year and thank you for your continued support.
