How YOU Can Help –

It is our goal to continue to offer the Vision of Hope program to hurting young women at a very low cost. You can play a part in keeping this ministry up and running! We only need $11,210 more to meet our goal!  If we all work together, we can do it!!!  Let’s do everything
we can to raise $40,000 together.

We need prayer! If you cannot support financially, you can be a GREAT support to us by diligently praying for the safety of the race participants and that God will provide for our financial needs through this fundraiser. If not for the prayers of faithful people like you, we would not be  able to keep our ministry going!

Thank you again for being involved in supporting the work that God is doing through Vision of Hope to serve hurting girls.  We are so very thankful for your prayers and support.

Bethany Dunn
Bethany heard about Vision of Hope while attending Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. When she began praying about what God wanted her to do after graduating, He kept bringing Vision of Hope to her mind. Knowing that there was an internship available, Bethany applied, was accepted, and began her internship with VOH in July, 2012. Since then she has been amazed at the opportunities God has given her to learn more about His Word and how it applies to everyday life. Bethany now serves on staff at Vision of Hope.
