Cross of HOPE
In Jefferson County, we have many high school teens who are considered "unaccompanied homeless youth", and unfortunately, they are often the forgotten few. Often times, during the Christmas season focus tends to be on families with small children, and during this time, we also want to remember our homeless teens in our area high schools. Each shoe boxed sized gift box is a beautifully wrapped box stuffed full of fun gifts appropriate for teenage boys and girls. The boxes are delivered to participating Jefferson County High Schools' guidance offices to be distributed to the teens. Our goal is to provide a little HOPE to these teens during the holiday season and to let them know that they are not forgotten.

Since December of 2015, Cole's Hope has delivered over 150 Boxes of HOPE to Jefferson County high schools to be delivered to unaccompanied homeless high school teens. Each box was beautifully wrapped and stuffed full of age appropriate gifts for males and females. Our goal with our HOPE in a Box campaign is to deliver a smile and a little HOPE to students who for one reason or another, have found themselves in a hardship situation.

There are 2 ways you can help!
PURCHASE OUR "CROSS OF HOPE":Each Cross of HOPE purchase for $25.00 sponsors a Homeless Teen for Christmas! Every Cross of HOPE is handmade and beautifully unique (each varies from 4.5" - 5.5" tall), making it the perfect gift, tree ornament, rear view mirror necklace or home decor accent. The Cross of HOPE comes with a Faith Card and is beautifully wrapped in a rustic sachel - shipped to your home or to a gift address for free. Faith Card reads: (front) "The Cross of HOPE, Faith is being sure of what we HOPE for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1" (back) "Each Cross of HOPE purchase sponsors a homeless high school teen for Christmas. With this cross, you are giving HOPE to those who need it most." You can also purchase a Cross of HOPE in honor or memory of a loved one that will be noted on the card.
