NEW THIS YEAR! Introducing "HOPE Travels" our traveling boutique that offers homeless teens or teens in hardship situations the chance to shop for FREE prom formal wear! This is not your typical boutique, but a boutique especially for high school teens to offer them a day of pampering and shopping that makes them feel special! Tickets are distributed to Jefferson County high schools and teens shop for dresses, formal wear and accessories as well as enter into raffles for free prom tickets and hair style sessions!

HOPE Travels - Traveling Boutique

Cole's Hope is kicked off our 1st Annual "HOPE in a Box" Christmas Campaign in December 2015. We delivered 85 shoe box sized gift boxes full of gifts and food cards to local area high schools to be given to unaccompanied homeless teens. Each year the number has grown, with 167 HOPE boxes delivered in December of 2018! During the holiday season, many food drives and gift drives take place, but it is the homeless high school teens who are often the forgotten few as we tend to focus on families with small children. Our goal is provide a little HOPE and bring a smile to teens in Jefferson County. HOPE in a Box gift boxes will be delivered to each school the week before Christmas. 

We've delivered over 550 "HOPE in a Box" gift boxes to unaccompanied homeless teens in Jefferson County, MO since Dec. 2015!

Each year, with help from our community, Cole's Hope sponsors new backpacks packed full of essential school supplies to area high schools. Backpacks are distributed to high schools to be given to under privileged students to help them feel a part of their school and foster a sense of belongings.
