January 14, 2021 officially marked the Grand Opening of Hope Springs and the start of the next chapter in housing solutions for our community.
The Grand Opening was a great success thanks in large part to our emcee and board member, Todd Felts. The program included remarks from HOPES Board President, Doug Brewer, Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Senator Jackie Rosen, Congressman Mark Amodei, and former HOPES patient turned Hope Springs supporter, Alex Johnson.
We’re grateful for the few partners and staff who were able to safely join us onsite for the ribbon cutting, including: Doug Brewer, Todd Felts, Alex Johnson, HOPES’ Chief Operations Officer, Ivy Spadone, HOPES’ Chief Financial Officer, Debbie Devay, HOPES’ Director of Philanthropy and Communications, Mandi Fleiner, project supporters Bob Conrad, Pat Cashell and Abbi Whitaker. Thanks to Ann Silver at the Chamber of Commerce for use of the Giant Scissors to kick of this special project.
The HOPES team is especially grateful to our IT and Facilities team, led by Jake Wahrer for their support and dedication to bringing CEO, Sharon Chamberlains vision to life.
Thank you everyone who supported this first-of-its-kind project, and most importantly, for giving the most vulnerable members of our community a chance to overcome, heal, and grow.
