Some of you may have noticed that our blog, Hopewell Voices has not been updated in a while. But we have the good fortune of having a volunteer who also happens to be a writer and who is looking forward to helping us with a blog rejuvenation! We plan to update blog posts on a monthly basis, once we get going this Spring. And we have some ideas of topics or stories we would like to share, but we would love some input from you.

 What would you like to know more about?

What story do you want to hear?

And of course, do you have a personal story you would like to share with others.
(These can be shared anonymously, and our volunteer can help with the writing if you don’t feel comfortable doing that part yourself.)
