ORGANIZATION: SPARC Hope

Looking for a way to volunteer but you just don’t have time, physical capability, or a lot of resources. Do you have a group of friends, family or church members that are looking for ways to support an organization? Let me introduce you to SPARC Hope, we are a nonprofit that supports single working parents that are pursuing higher education. We provide resources and services directly to the parent and their families as they work toward the goal of providing a better and brighter future for their families.

One resource we provide is a pantry where parents can come shop for all their grocery and household needs offering them a savings of $200-600 a month and an overall program benefit of $6600 a year.

Procedure for Hosting a Pantry Drive:

  1. Identify items you want to gather or a theme (Ex: Halloween candy for a Halloween theme).
    1. You can get ideas from our Top 10 Needs List posted on our Facebook page or by checking our Standard Needs List on our website under the donations tab.
    2. You can also call the office for a more a current list.
  2. Identify who you want to participate in the drive and solicit your network.
    1. This could be your work colleagues, neighbors, friends, family, or anyone you choose.
    2. This could even be a project for school-aged kids.
  3. Identify a time frame for the drive.
  4. Identify a drop-off or pick-up date.
    1. Call and let the office know when you would like to either drop off the items or have us pick them up. Office hours are Monday-Thursday from 9-5.

Mission Statement

SPARC Hope is dedicated to developing the potential of single mothers and fathers in the Kentuckiana area with encouragement, education, and by setting a good example through a Christian viewpoint.

Description

  • We want to empower single parents to seek a better quality of life through pursuing higher education, allowing them to become self-supportive through a new career.
  • Breaking the cycle of poverty through higher education or technical education.
  • We know the road to the American Dream is full of obstacles, we help single-parent families navigate through those obstacles.
  • SPARC Hope serves single-parent families who are struggling to make ends meet and who are willing to make the extra effort to help secure the future for themselves and their children.
  • We are a liaison between resources and services for single moms in our community. SPARC Hope is not a welfare or charity, but rather a hand up.
