One Hope United is a 120-year-old non-profit organization, providing services and support to families and children in need. Early learning and child development, foster care, family counseling, and residential care are just a few of the services One Hope United offers to the 10,000 children, adults, and families they work with each year. The organization offers services in the Chicago area and Illinois, Wisconsin, Florida, and Missouri.
To keep a Non-Profit like One Hope United funded and operating smoothly takes a community. Helping would-be do-gooders seamlessly donate their time and money is an important, and ongoing, challenge. In previous years, during the holiday season when most people do their gift-giving and donating, One Hope United collected physical items, like clothes and toys, to distribute to the families they worked with. But a few years ago, the organization realized they had a chance to make a bigger impact by collecting funds for their year-round programs during this holiday season.
