EdCampBJI has a great history of contributing to fantastic local projects. At Edcamp Bemidji 2017, there were many discussions related to the needs in our community. As a result, we decided to choose Village of Hope as our philanthropy sponsor. Village of Hope works to end the cycle of homelessness in our community.
Village of Hope promotes self worth and independence through the provision of temporary shelter and supportive services for families experiencing homelessness. Their vision is to break the cycle of homelessness. To do that they use a two generational approach to work with both the children and adults and use a strategy that addresses both the developmental needs of the parents and their children. Two generational approaches are getting families on the path to economic independence.
