A community outreach event - Get ready…the date is set -- HOPE FEST Arizona 2021– the 9th Annual happens Saturday, September 11th. Prescott’s beautiful Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza will once again come alive as thousands will enjoy music, guest speakers, a multitude of connections and community services, as part of the HOPE Serves Family Resource Fair, the FREE amusements in the Family Fun Zone, and a bright-n-shiny Car & Motorcycle Show!
2019 was the very best HOPE FEST Arizona yet! We witnessed a constant, steady flow of more than 6,000 guests throughout the entire day. The event’s name recognition has grown within our community along with our dedicated mission to serve: The Veterans, Active Military, First Responders, and the vulnerable of Yavapai County. Documented survey results and endorsement responses indicate guests are engaged to improve our community. They see the Festival as a way to be actively involved locally.
Here you can view the Accomplishments Report from HOPE FEST 2019 : 130 Service Providers; 60+ Volunteers; the Veteran Family Service Area assisted over 550 families; DES Arizona @ Work – 3 divisions focused on Job Services and Child Support Services; United Blood Services Blood Drive 150% of goal; record numbers of Gift of Warmth donations of cold weather clothing. The Fostering Hope Award 2019 winner, REBOOT RECOVERY, received $1,000 award in support Veterans and First Responders. The Family Fun Zone and the Car & Motorcycle Show, largest in the Festival’s history, attracting over 1000 guests.
Our passion for 2021 is to go deeper in purpose, services offered, and to be better agents of change. We are exploring new avenues to build our capacity to ultimately serve more people and support healthy families. Our desire is for God’s love to be demonstrated through caring, relevant services that lead to revived lives right here, in our own community. Change IS Possible!
The theme for this year’s community outreach is “Press On!” Clearly, COVID shook everyone’s life up! Many of us experienced frustration, devastating loss, ongoing uncertainty, and a “cancel” mindset. It is ONLY because God made a way that this year’s HOPE FEST Arizona is even taking place! That and an endless supply of relentless determination, never-fading hope, love and mercy for our Community. So grateful God never gives up on us.
God has led us to an inspired vision for 2021 that is amazing and exciting. We invite you to invest yourself through the resources that He has given you – your talents, your energy, and your finances in this work God has called us to. HOPE Serves! So, come join our hope-filled prayers, efforts and dreams, as we prepare to engage our community. You are needed here!
Plans are underway to bring Live Music, Guest Speakers, the HOPE Serves Family Resource Fair, many Service & Food Vendors, the Family Fun Zone and much more for the fun and benefit of the Greater Prescott Area. Together we as a community CAN offer compassion combined with real solutions as well as hands and hearts to serve to Be Part of the Solution!
*** Once again we will be collecting donations of canned food and new cold weather gear, such as coats, socks, sleeping bags...bring your's so ALL our neighbors will be Warm for Winter ***
Let’s align our shared values and serve together to build a culture that cherishes lasting hope and true transformation!
