joe says "hope acts"

Readers of this blog may be familiar with Hope Acts, a local organization based in Portland that works alongside addicts and alcoholics in recovery and African asylum seekers for a community where all people experience social, emotional, physical, economic, and spiritual well-being. This wonderful organization's mission is to improve the quality of life for persons of the Greater Portland area by addressing needs for healthy living, housing security, and a hopeful economic future, and to strengthen neighborhoods to become safe places of hospitality, hope and healing for all people. This Saturday, July 8th, Hope Acts is hosting its annual Take Back Hope Fundraiser. Held at Bayside Bowl in Portland, this event will feature live music, bowling, food, and fun, all to benefit this great local organization. Joe hopes the event is a success and hopes you consider attending!
