– Reminder – this event is coming up soon –
Join us for a 5K Run/Walk at beautiful Kerr Lake/Satterwhite Point to raise funds and awareness for Community Partners of Hope. They are working to transform the lives of homeless men by uniting community partners to offer these men hope, help, and resources that enable growth into physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually healthy contributors to their families and the community.
Community Partners of Hope operates an emergency temporary shelter for men only from 1 November through 31 March every year. The shelter has been in operation since 2009.
Community Partners of Hope operates Hope House which is a transitional housing unit which offers the next level of assistance to a select group of men who show promise of once again becoming self-sufficient contributors to our community. Once admitted to Hope House, these men will be assigned trained mentors, and will receive the resources, encouragement, and guidance needed for them to one day live in homes of their own.
The 5K run/walk is held at Satterwhite Point in Henderson (6254 Satterwhite Point Road for your GPS) beginning at 9 am. Plank Chapel United Methodist Church in Kittrell organizes the event.
