crisis relief fund

Amidst the fear and uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have an incredible opportunity to trust God, band together, and continue loving our neighbors.

Hope Academy students and families are among the most likely to be impacted by job loss, childcare needs, and food insecurity.

We’re also uniquely positioned to care for these families. Because of the unusually deep relationships between teachers, students, and parents, Hope Academy staff are on the front lines of caring for vulnerable children and families in this time.

Here’s how we’re responding, and how you can help: 

Caring for Families

  • Food: Many families at Hope Academy rely on school breakfast and lunch for their children. We’re connecting families with Sheridan Story, Jericho Road and other resources, as well as distributing bagged meals at Hope Academy.

  • Childcare: Hope Academy is connecting families who need childcare to those who can help provide it. We are also offering childcare for the children of health care providers and emergency responders.

  • Education: All students K-12 are engaging in age-appropriate, at-home learning. K-5 has lessons they can access, and 6-12 are doing live, online classes. Each family has been issued the necessary devices and internet support.

  • Additional Support: Teachers are checking in with each student twice a week. Other staff are making personal calls to ensure the continued well-being and progress of our students. Teachers and staff will notify our support team of families in crisis, and how we can help.

How You Can Help

  • Support Hope Academy’s Frontline ResponseRight now, teachers and staff are on the front lines of caring for vulnerable students – both to continue educational growth and stability, and to care for the emotional, mental, and spiritual health of children and families. Your support offsets 90% of the costs for children to be loved and educated at Hope Academy.

Thank you for stepping up to pray and partner with us to love our neighbors in this time of need.
