The Hope Council receives $400 grant

The Hope Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs, Inc. received a $400 grant from the Wisconsin Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa, the International Honorary Organization of Women Educators.

Alpha Delta Kappa reaches out to others in several significant ways: at the local level to develop partnerships with medical institutions and fund-raising organizations and facilitate the involvement of other agencies and organizations to support key programs and the education of local personnel; at the regional level, to develop programs through the use of technology; and nationally to contribute more than $1 million to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, and more than $300,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Dallas, Texas.

The services of the Hope Council include helping parents access child care while furthering their recovery, educating underage drinkers, assessing impaired drivers and educating school children on a variety of topics.

“We are so grateful to Alpha Delta Kappa for their financial support as well as for their faith in our work,” said Guida Brown, executive director. “We appreciate their efforts in facilitating community involvement with organizations such as the Hope Council.”

Founded in 1968 and incorporated in 1969, the mission of the HOPE Council is to reduce the impact of alcohol and other drug abuse throughout Kenosha County by providing education, prevention, intervention and referral services.
