Five Reasons to Partner With Us
- Your group will enrich the lives of the abused and neglected children living in our group and foster homes.
- Your employees, members or students will discover a new purpose in life as they get to know our children and learn about our mission.
- A shared commitment to Hephzibah’s mission will help boost morale and foster a culture of teamwork and social responsibility.
- Your partnership with Hephzibah will raise your visibility in the community.
- Everyone in your group will benefit from the personal satisfaction that comes from helping children in need.
Three Ways to Help
- Organize a group project. Choose from a wide variety of activities with the children living in our group homes or suggest your own activities or projects. In recent years, our partners have volunteered at our annual sibling camp for brothers and sisters living in different group and foster homes, sponsored our annual foster family holiday party, helped spruce up Hephzibah Home, transformed our backyard into a healing garden oasis for the children in our group homes, donated computer equipment for our technology program, dazzled the children with chemistry experiments to spark their interest in science and much more. We welcome your thoughts and ideas!
- Sponsor an event. Each year, our partners provide critically needed support and volunteer services as sponsors for our Heart of Gold Ball, Hoof it for Hephzibah 5K Run/Walk, Dodgeball Tournament at North Avenue Beach, Foster Family Holiday Party, Halloween Party, Thanksgiving dinner for the children at Hephzibah Home and other events. Some partners sponsor existing events, while others come up with their own.
- Launch a workplace giving campaign. Encourage your employees to support our mission through payroll deductions. Support their charitable endeavors by doubling or tripling their gifts with a company match.
