Hope House - a home for women abuse survivors

$1,143 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 16 days
Hi! I'm Sister Theonymphi Kallis.  I am a Greek Orthodox nun who has worked together with Sister Foteini Brandenburg for many years to establish and manage White Field Farm, an all - natural home and body product company.  We have offered employment and support to women survivors of abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence, and addiction through our business.  The women we have worked with all have one common problem, they need affordable, stable shelter.  

Now it's time for us to provide women survivors with a home.  You can join us in our effort by sponsoring me in the St. Louis Half Marathon 11/3/19.  Help me reach this goal and provide 2 women survivors with a home to call their own!

My Hope House Campaign is an effort to raise $250,000 for the following :

$50,000 - PURCHASE THE HOME (Clarksville MO)
$74,000 - IMPROVEMENTS / RENOVATION 
$100,000 - PROGRAMMING / STAFFING / WORKSHOPS
$36,000 - HOPE HOUSE VEHICLE

Raising this money will mean that we are providing women survivors with a safe sanctuary space that they can call home.  It will provide them shelter that will be the foundation of them getting back on their feet after a lifetime of trauma.  It will mean that you become part of their story of healing.
