crisis relief fund
Hope Academy students and families have been some of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, devastating riots, and increase in violence throughout Minneapolis – with families facing job loss, food insecurity, childcare issues, and isolation in small crowded apartments.
For the past six months, staff have poured countless hours into supporting and caring for vulnerable families, and continuing to provide a remarkable, God-centered education for each child. Generous partners like you have contributed more than $97,000 to Hope’s Crisis Relief Fund—to help us provide food, gas, rental assistance, and other essentials to our families who have been impacted financially by the crisis.
As Hope Academy responds to the emerging needs facing families, we are pressing forward to address the deeper educational injustices facing our urban neighbors.
- Support Hope Academy’s Frontline Response: Hope Academy is pleased to be serving 544 inner-city youth this school year through a mix of in-person and online learning. We are facing significant additional costs to provide essential COVID-19 safety measures and technology—to keep our students safe and healthy, and ensure they have equal access to a remarkable, God-centered education. Your gift to Hope Academy offsets 90% of the costs to provide this life-changing education to our children.
- Give to the Hope Academy Crisis Relief Fund: Funds will be used to meet the emerging needs of our families during this crisis, such as food, gas, rent and tuition assistance, and more.
Thank you for stepping up to pray and partner with us to love our neighbors in this time of need.
