Hope Harbor
Merry Christmas!!!

Blessings to each of you for a very Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year 2020!

Thank you to all our partners who have supported Hope Harbor this year through prayer, encouragement, advice, in-kind gifts, material goods, financial gifts and friendship! Your support is the reason we will open doors in 2020 to women and children who have no hope. Thank you for joining us in this Kingdom work.
If you haven't had the opportunity to partner with us, please consider a monthly or one time gift as we end 2019 and look forward to opening the first part of 2020.

Dear Friends,

'Leaving the nest’ often means starting a new chapter in life. In our part of New Mexico, “Leaving the NEST” also means starting a new chapter but in the lives of primarily women and their children who have experienced domestic violence.
In Lincoln County and Mescalero, this new chapter is now called Hope Harbor, a transitional living facility nearing completion in Capitan. With your help here at the end of the year, Hope Harbor can open for three families in 2020!  From there, supported college training, life-skill classes, public schools for the kids and eventual job placement will be accessible from a safe, stable, managed environment. A truly safe Harbor. Beyond 2020, our vision is to expand the facility/program to serve and offer hope to many more women and their children. 
The traumatic back stories would break your heart. Let it suffice to say that, thanks to scores of generous volunteers, contractors, other non-profits, law enforcement and local utility companies giving of their time, clothing, cash, furniture, and appliances, we are close to opening! 
As you may be aware, Hope Harbor receives no government assistance of any kind. That’s why we need your help. We hope you will make a commitment to this ministry by making a generous gift to Hope Harbor today. Thank you in advance for helping us work toward changing the lives of women and children, one family at a time. With your help, their best days are yet to come.
With gratitude,

Lorna Fike
Executive Director
