2022 HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards
One of the ways that Mothers In Crisis spreads hope is through the HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards given during April National Month of Hope to those who exemplify excellence by empowering and spreading hope to others through their various occupations and initiatives.
What does an author of Christian fiction, a sitting senator, a medical mobile unit, a television show, a formerly incarcerated social activist, a peace farm that teaches environmental awareness in Jamaica, an outreach that reaches the poor in Pakistan and a publicist, have in common? You might say that they are all the same race or gender, and the answer is no. You might say they all like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the answer is I do not know.
The correct answer is they are all receiving HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards in April during the National Month of Hope. HOPEE Awards are given to those who exemplify excellence by empowering and spreading hope to others through their various occupations and initiatives. When Mothers In Crisis started the HOPEE Awards in 2019 as part of our campaign to promote the awareness of hope through public advocacy, we had no idea that they would be so diverse and far reaching.
