A huge thank you to Emma's family and former classmates that worked with us to put together a donation goal of $1000.00, which will support the arts and crafts program for a year! A donation of $50.00 is suggested, but everything is appreciated. As of August 2nd, we have raised over $1450.00! Emma participated in our arts program and created beautiful pieces. You can find her floral painting in the Art Show section of our Media page. We know her memory continues on at Our Place through the art program and in our community garden through pink flowers that have been planted in her memory!

A planned gift is a charitable donation provided during a donor's lifetime but the payments are not received until sometime in the future. The Planned Giving program encourages donors to consider the possibility of supporting Our Place Community of Hope through, for example, a will or as a beneficiary of life insurance.
The work of Our Place has benefited substantially from a number of individuals who have remembered us in their wills. We thank them and their families greatly.
Rest in Peace Emma - gone, but never forgotten.
We thank you for your continued generosity that enables us to continue to support people living with mental illness.
