In Memoriam This year, Lexington lost a great friend and generous philanthropist with the passing of Don Jacobs, Sr. Long-time supporters of rebuilding lives, most recently Don and Cathy Jacobs built the Jacobs Hope Cafeteria on West Loudon, a beautiful facility which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner to hundreds of homeless, veteran, and mentally-ill clients every day. They also built the Don and Cathy Jacobs House which houses men in recovery, veterans, employment and mental health programs. As part of his Hope Center involvement, Don has supported events, capital campaigns and emergency shelter renovations plus the One Parent Scholar House. He, and his wife

Cathy, will always be a part of the Hope Center family. He was a man who put his caring into action and he will be greatly missed.

Letter from Executive Director It is customary to devote this space to describing the path the Hope Center has followed during the fiscal year just concluded. For instance, in December we entered into a contract with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government to initiate and conduct a Housing First program. Housing First is an approach to homelessness that has gained a lot of support in recent years. The idea is to get homeless people into affordable permanent housing as quickly as possible and offer needed services to them once they are housed. For many homeless people it is the most promising approach. While reviewing the year, however, it occurred to me that I first came to the Hope Center 20 years ago this fall. Numbers with zeros at the end of them tend to spur a certain amount of reflection. In 1995 the Hope Center managed one building, the city-owned emergency shelter. About 130 men slept there on an average night. We now own or manage facilities where an average of 800 men, women and children find a safe and secure place to sleep at night. That includes about 80 parents and 100 children at One Parent Scholar House. That also includes the Emergency Shelter, recovery centers for both men and women, two permanent housing facilities, again one for men and one for women, a transitional housing residence, and a new dining facility. We also direct a recovery program in the local detention center, although, as you might suspect, we do not oversee the residential aspect of that program. Looking back at the road from then to now, I can’t help remembering the many generous supporters who made these things possible. I think of Don and Mira Ball and of Billy Gatton and Bonnie Quantrell Jones. Without them the Hope Center would have simply closed within weeks. Then there is Dr. George Privett, Jr. His support for the Hope Center Foundation and the recovery center bearing his name has been crucial. The backing of the family of Barbara Hardwick Rouse has appeared in many ways, including the permanent housing facility for clients coming out of our women’s recovery program. Doug Ezzell and his family have been steadfast in their support. Don and Cathy Jacobs were instrumental in the construction of our two most recent buildings and the renovation of the original emergency shelter. We will miss Don. Then there are the people who do the hardest work of all, the many dedicated and caring people of the Hope Center staff. I am thankful for them every day. It has been quite a journey over the last two decades. The Hope Center has come a long way. What is even more important is the fact that thousands of desperate people have also come a long way, the long way back on the path from homelessness and hopelessness to lives of stability and self-reliance. Let me end by thanking so many of you who will read this page. Your support and generosity keep this place running. More than 14,000 individuals and businesses have given to the Hope Center over the last twenty years. That is humbling. Thank you so much.

Cecil Dunn, Executive Director

We help. We heal. We give hope.

“Everything outwardly was fine, but I was so torn up on the inside.” – Greg, Men’s Recovery Program Before coming to the Hope Center, I was a choir director at my dad’s church, I studied music, ballet, modern, jazz, voice, and tap at a performing arts high school, and was a constant performer. I left high school my senior year to take a job on a cruise ship. From there, the opportunities started rolling in. I went to Japan, Finland, Sweden — all over the world, performing. At first I was just a dancer, then a singer-dancer, then a company manager. In between trips, I did shows at Actors Theatre of Louisville, Music Theatre of Louisville, and Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, and I was always in community shows. Between all of these jobs, I started feeling lonely and overwhelmed, so I drank. I went to other recovery programs and had stints of sobriety here and there, but nothing ever stuck. Slowly but surely I just stopped auditioning for shows, and then my word wasn’t any good. My drinking made me doubt what I could do and what I deserved. And then it got to the point where drinking stopped making me feel better, and that’s the most miserable feeling - when it doesn’t work. To everyone else, nothing looked wrong. I had money, a car, a beautiful apartment. Everything outwardly was fine, but I was so torn up on the inside. In fact, everyone who saw me would always say “Oh, you’re in such great shape, you’re fine, you’re so young, you just don’t know when to say when.” And for years I believed that. I could not make myself see that I was an alcoholic, and that I was spiritually and mentally bankrupt. Once you’ve got recovery in you, it’s hard to drink. That’s what happened to me. The more I drank the more miserable I was, because I already knew it wasn’t going to work, and I knew that hammer was going to drop. If I could do the things I did while I was drinking, then there was no limit to what I could do without it. This is my third time at the Hope Center. This time, there’s no excuse. Every day, I want to be a positive influence on people who don’t know or who never imagined life without using. I’ve been the kitchen supervisor at the Privett Center for over a month. I didn’t know anything about the kitchen job, I didn’t apply for it, but my higher power knew and provided me this arena to help. You never know what blessings lie in the unknown.

“This program has helped me find myself.” – Jami, Women’s Recovery Program My life was basically bouncing around from place to place. I carried my clothes around in garbage bags. I destroyed every relationship I had with my family. I’ve lost my children, more than once. I graduated family drug court and relapsed the day they told me I was finished. I stole money from my mom. She wanted me to go to treatment, so I came to the Hope Center for the first time in 2005. I was doing things I was told to do because I knew I had to do them in order to get what I wanted. Long story short, this is my seventh time in treatment. Before I came to the Hope Center this time, I was drinking from the time I woke up until I went to bed, putting anything and everything into my body, and I didn’t want to live anymore. I went to jail. After a few weeks, I came out of the stupor and decided that I would be most productive in the Hope Center program in jail. I completed, and by the grace of God, the judge let me come straight to the Hope Center once I was released. I knew that I was not ready to live life on life’s terms. This time, I asked to come to the Hope Center — I wasn’t forced to. I wasn’t here to get my kids back, I wasn’t here to appease my mother, I wasn’t here to make a judge happy. I was here because it was a matter of life and death. I knew that this was my last hope. When I first came here, they told me it would be simple, but not easy. Recovery doesn’t mean we get the things back that we lost; it means we find ourselves. This program has helped me find myself. Today I have my own apartment, and I just signed my second contract as a peer mentor. I’m the grandmother of a beautiful, one-year-old granddaughter who will never have to see me use or drink. I have my children back in my life. And I love myself. At the end of the day, I’m tired because I’ve been productive, not because I’ve been out trying to figure out where I’m going to sleep or eat that day, or because I’ve been working just to blow my money on drugs and alcohol. I’m tired because I’ve helped people all day, and I’ve gotten off work and gotten straight on a bus to go to a meeting, or meeting with my sponsor and doing homework. Everything I’m doing is for my recovery, and not because I’m trying to find the next fix. That’s what the Hope Center has done for me.

Emergency Shelter

Social Services Program: Our Social Services caseworkers assist clients with housing, health care, transportation, finances, and connect them with other resources and agencies as needed. Last year, the Social Services Program provided 12,038 services to 1,611 clients.

Employment Hispanic Program: Program: Our Employment Program supports clients’ efforts to find employment by offering them training opportunities, transportation to interviews, résumé and referral assistance, help finding offsite housing, information about higher education, and more. Last year, 4,485 services were provided to clients requesting assistance with employment and housing.

The Hispanic Program helps Spanish-speaking clients overcome the language barriers that stand between them and independent living. The bilingual coordinator of this program ensures that our Spanishspeaking clients benefit fully from programs offered by the Hope Center. Last year, the Hispanic Program provided 2,244 services.

The Emergency Shelter is the first step on the road to self-sustainability for most Hope Center clients, and the doorway to the programs we provide. Opened in 1993, the shelter provided 73,790 nights of lodging and 39,002 articles of clothing last year, as well as housing several of our programs.

Hyde Hope Health Clinic: Typically, homeless individuals do not have access to regular health care. We offer our clients free health care services at the newly-renovated health clinic, named for long-time Hope Center board member Dr. Gordon Hyde. This clinic has four medical exam rooms and a dental exam room, all staffed by medical professionals from HealthFirst Bluegrass. Last year, the Hyde Hope Health Clinic provided services to 550 clients. The Women’s Recovery Program also employs a full-time nurse practitioner.

Veterans Program: The Department of Veterans Affairs awarded the Hope Center a grant designed to help reduce the number of veterans who are homeless and without essential services. The grant assists the Hope Center in conducting extensive outreach programs, clinical assessments, mental health treatment, alcohol and drug abuse counseling, and employment assistance. Veterans participating in this program are housed in a separate area of the shelter in two dorms, with a common area and kitchen, and laundry facilities. Last year, 86 veterans were provided with housing, meals, and social services.

“I came here because it was safer for me.” – John, Veterans Program I grew up in Indiana, and joined the Marine Corps in 1995. My father and grandfather were also Marine Corps Veterans. Over 15 years ago, I moved to Lexington and I had a great job doing tile and hardwood installation in new homes. But my world was turned upside down in 2012, when I was in a horrible car accident on the way to work. I was in a coma for seven weeks, and hospitalized for six months. I had a traumatic brain injury, and I lost function in my right hand. Even now, I have limited use of my right leg and my vision isn’t as good as it was. When I woke up in the hospital nearly two months after the accident, I couldn’t even remember anything about the time before it happened. After intense physical therapy, I’m walking again. After the accident, my girlfriend and mother of my children, who are five and six, started abusing drugs. I don’t use drugs, and I knew I had to get away from that. I moved in to a place with some other folks who ended up using too, and stealing or destroying everything I had. Eventually, I didn’t have a place to live or even a car. My disability meant I couldn’t work, so I turned to the Hope Center for help. I came here because it was safer for me. I entered the Veterans Program and the staff is helping me with my paperwork so that I can get my military benefits and get VA medical support. Over a year ago, my girlfriend took my children away to Florida, so my number one goal is getting back on my feet and getting custody of them, so I can raise them in a safe environment. It’s not easy – I’ve had some job interviews, but it’s hard to get hired with my disability. My background is in physical labor, which I just can’t do anymore. I’m praying so much right now. I just want to get my kids back. I’m rebuilding my life here at the Hope Center. That accident could have killed me, but it’s hard to kill a Marine; we’re pretty tough.

“We help each other through the healing process.” – Alexander, Emergency Shelter I was born and raised in Nicholasville. I had a beautiful childhood. After high school, I went to work, and worked for 35 years, until I was no longer able to work. Before I came to the Hope Center, there were things that were bringing me down, and I was drinking, which made it all worse. I didn’t like what came with my drinking, and I wanted to better myself. I’m not a quitter. So I stopped feeling sorry for myself and just got up. I was a cowboy without a horse, but I had a couple of ropes, so I finally caught a horse. I’ve been here a little over a year. The interaction I have here with all these different people — it’s a healing process both for me and for others. We help each other through the healing process. I’ve been blessed with a good caseworker in Mr. Shawn. I do chores around here to keep my rent paid. I talk to guys here about keeping a positive attitude, and their outlook. Nobody brought me here but me, and the same goes for everyone here, in my opinion. The kind of place I really want I’m not able to get now, but it will come. I’m looking at a job doing patient safety, something I have experience in. It’ll be a nice break from here and a way to improve my financial situation. I’ll stay here for a while so I can save up for my own place. Being here will help me find my way back to being the person I want to be.

Mental health program

Don & Cathy Jacobs House The Don & Cathy Jacobs House is the main facility for our Transitional Housing program, and houses men participating in several of our programs, including Recovery, Employment, and Mental Health. Built in 2012, this 144-bed facility reduces the capacity pressure of the Emergency Shelter. Last year, the Jacobs House provided 43,880 nights of lodging for clients in several programs.

Last year, the Mental Health Program provided an average of over 2,000 services each month, from medications, therapy, and housing to life skills groups, payee services, and dual-diagnosis groups. Each year, several clients are housed in the community and continue to live independently with the help of weekly visits from their Hope Center case manager. The regular visits and case management assistance are only one part of what makes this program so unique. Ultimately, the Mental Health Team stabilizes clients and prepares them for community living regardless of the time it takes to achieve these goals.

Jacobs Hope Cafeteria Built in 2012, the Jacobs Hope Cafeteria feeds the men staying in both the Emergency Shelter and the Don and Cathy Jacobs House in a modern and pleasant setting. Volunteers serve breakfast, lunch and dinner here every day of the year; nearly 450 meals are served each day. Dinner at Jacobs Hope Cafeteria is open to the community, in addition to Hope Center clients. Last year, 159,745 meals were served from the Jacobs Cafeteria to Hope Center clients and community members in need.

Recovery Program for Men

George Privett Recovery Center

Since its beginning in 1996, the Recovery Program for Men has helped over 2,000 men to battle active addiction and move into sobriety and self-sustainability. This program provides a long-term recovery approach that is both peer-driven and professionally supervised. Our recovery program has a high rate of success, with an 84% decrease in alcohol use and an 88% decrease in illegal drug use reported. Last year, 223 men completed this program.

The Privett Center was built in 2008 and filled a need to accommodate more men in our recovery program, and provide a quiet, dedicated environment in which to focus on recovery. The Privett Center has 134 beds for Recovery Program clients in Phase 1 and Phase 2, and provided 46,215 nights of lodging and 138,645 meals in 2014.

“I had to accept that I was powerless.” – Chris, Men’s Recovery Program I grew up in an alcoholic family. My dad stopped drinking when I was 12 years old. He was involved in a program, and when he died, he had 22 years of sobriety. My parents always suspected I had a problem with alcohol, but they couldn’t get the truth out of me. By the time I was 16, I had been to three different treatment facilities. For a while after those, I stayed sober, but didn’t really do any step work. Just six months here, eight months there. After a couple of runaways, and bad behavior, I was sent to a long-term program for eight months. I did stints in group homes and some time in juvenile detention. My bottom was not being able to take care of my family, struggling every day to survive and get high. One night, during my heavy crack use, my daughter was at the house I was staying at. After I put the kids to bed, it was my time; I smoked crack for several hours. My daughter came into the room, sick, not being able to sleep, stomach hurting, crying, and I knew right then, that this was a direct effect of me smoking crack in the house. And that was the last time I ever let her come stay with me. It takes being removed from the drug itself to have that moment of clarity, to see the truth about yourself and what you’ve been doing. And it sickened me, everything I gave up in my life just to use. When I got to the Hope Center, I started really taking a look at the first three steps. I had to accept that I was powerless and there was no reason good enough for me to stop using. Every single morning now, I hit my knees and pray. For the longest time, all I prayed for was for God to keep me sober. It is so nice to wake up and not dread the day to come, and not instantly be angry. The steps and this program have really changed my life.

Recovery Program for woMen

Ball-Quantrell Jones Recovery Center

Approximately 80 women are served by the Recovery Program for Women at any given time and there is normally a waiting list of more wishing to enter. Since 2002, 532 women have completed all aspects of the program.

The success of the Recovery Program for Men led to a demand for the same opportunity for women, and in 2002, the 80 bed Ball-Quantrell Jones Recovery Center for Women was built. Last year, this facility provided 27,246 nights lodging and served 81,615 meals.

“I am no longer the aunt hiding from the cops.” – Carla, Women’s Recovery Program The Hope Center was not my first rehab experience; this was my fourth and the second one I completed. So needless to say, when I arrived at the Hope Center in April of 2014, I thought I knew everything about recovery, everything about AA, and about addiction. But what I did not realize when I came was that I was not living what I knew. There is a difference. I grew up in an alcoholic household. From the outside, we were the perfect family. My mom was the PTA mom who made brownies for everything. But we always lived a lie. The fighting and addiction were kept secret. And I soon learned I was begging for attention and affirmation. My addiction started when I was 18. I thought it was fun and I started with alcohol, pot and Xanax. But when I was introduced to cocaine, my world was turned upside down. I was stealing for my addiction. My first charge was when I was 19, and things only escalated from there: more jail time, more rehab centers, a stint of sobriety. But cocaine always seemed to get me back. In the Big Book, it says you can’t do the same things and expect different results. I wanted something different. I wanted recovery and I wanted to live the solution. I had always lived the lie. I soon learned that I have always run when things got real. I choose to stay in the Hope Center program, and to make it real. I began working in the Hope Center kitchen, stayed on as a peer mentor and became the kitchen supervisor. I learned what made me happy. I love to work. And I love to smile. I know how to actually live the steps. I now have my own apartment at the Rouse House, I pay my own bills, and am taking classes at BCTC, where I’m studying to be a social worker or counselor. While I was living in addiction, I was playing with my nieces in the front yard one day. A police car drove by and my niece said, “Carla, run inside so they don’t see you!” That was a telling moment in my life. But now I can be a real aunt. I am no longer the aunt that cops are looking for. My nieces can look up to me. I have learned to be someone. I sometimes just look around and think, “Wow, look at this.” hope center annual report | 2014-2015


permanent housing program No matter where you’re going in life, having a home helps you get there faster. Through our permanent housing programs, we’re giving clients a sanctuary that will allow them to contemplate their journey in a safe and sober environment.

Hill Rise Place Permanent Housing for Men This 40-unit efficiency apartment building provides male clients who are ready to move back into the community with a low-cost, drug- and alcohol-free residence that supports their continued recovery. Male residents have access to the Hope Center’s employment, recovery and social services programs as well as the Hyde Hope Health Clinic. The facility has a number of amenities, including a community room for AA and NA meetings, a community kitchen, coin laundry facilities and an active tenant council.

Barbara H. Rouse House Permanent Housing for Women Opened in 2010, this 44-unit apartment building provides affordable, permanent housing for women without concern about the lives they have left behind. Featuring similar amenities to the Hill Rise facility, this drug- and alcohol-free facility helps women further their recovery while becoming more independent and moving toward a new stage of their lives.

Housing First Program In December 2014, the Hope Center was awarded a grant to provide housing and case management through the Housing First Pilot Project. Through this program, 20 chronically homeless people in the community are placed in permanent housing and assigned a caseworker. The program is designed to get the hard-to-house into permanent housing and to show that it is more cost-effective to move these individuals off the streets. The clients targeted by the Housing First model are frequent utilizers of emergency rooms, detention centers, and psychiatric hospitals. Our first Housing First client was moved into an apartment in March of 2015, and since then, all available openings for the program have been filled.

“I’ve never felt this happy before in my life.” – Bonita, Housing First After my last incarceration, my daughter came to pick me up, and she asked me, “Are you through?” Her father asked me, “Do you like being told what to do? Because you’re going back to prison.” Those two statements from two people I care about really opened my eyes. I looked at my life and decided I could either go up or down. I knew that I wanted some kind of hope in my life. I wasn’t a bad person – I just made bad choices. I didn’t trust anyone. My kids and I didn’t have a bond. I was tired, and needed something to happen. I’ve been homeless off and on since 2013. I have never really received help before, or had a strong support network. When I met Mikal [Hope Center caseworker], I could feel how much she wanted to help me. I found my little apartment, and I’ve been there since March. Housing First is a fabulous program. It’s awesome to go home at night. I don’t have to worry about anyone putting me out, feeling uncomfortable, or cold – I feel good. And I’m able to make the right choices, physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. I set positive goals for myself every day, and take one thing at a time. I’m trying to get my health together, and I couldn’t do that, because I was here, there, and everywhere. I want to get my GED, and I’m studying all the time. I go to my workshop three times a week and try to stay busy. I found a job, I’m in a class, I’ve been going to Dress for Success, to counseling, to church, and doing everything I can do to help myself. I’m blessed and un-stressed. The Hope Center saved my life — there’s no telling where I may have been. It’s no joke out there. I’ve never felt this happy before in my life. I’m honored to be a part of this program.

One Parent Scholar House One Parent Scholar House helps single parents earn a college degree by providing affordable housing for their families, on-site child care and development for their children, counseling, and support from a community of staff and neighbors. Single-parent families are housed in 80 apartments, and our 3-Star rated on-site Child Development Center offers early education and care for residents’ children ages six weeks to five years. The families receive all this at little or no cost. The Hope Center wishes to recognize and thank the Lexington Housing Authority for a partnership that began in 2002 to assist formerly homeless and at-risk individuals in finding safe, affordable housing. The Lexington Housing Authority has granted the Hope Center 144 Housing Choice Vouchers that are utilized at four residential environments. The Lexington Housing Authority also provides 80 Housing Choice Vouchers to One Parent Scholar House to help single parent students house their children while they pursue higher education. This partnership is invaluable because of the financial impact and the positive social contribution it provides in assisting at-risk individuals to become self-sufficient, contributing members of their community.

“If I was not here, I would not be as happy as I am, and wouldn’t be able to do my best by him.” – Madyson, One Parent Scholar House Soon after I started my first year at EKU I discovered that I was expecting. My son’s dad and I were together for about two years. We lived together, but it just didn’t work out. When our relationship ended, my son Noah and I had nowhere to go, so we moved in with my mom in Georgia for the summer. My mom told me I had to figure something out, and she stumbled upon One Parent Scholar House. At first, I had too much pride. I wanted to do it myself: get my own apartment, go to school – I didn’t want being a single mom to define me, I didn’t want to be associated with what I thought a place like One Parent was. But she persisted because she saw what a great program it is. We investigated further, and I applied and started making plans to move back to Kentucky. My father is a pastor and my mom is a principal. I had always planned on going to college. My mother has five degrees and my dad has two or three. Growing up in an upper-middle class household makes living on assistance difficult for me. I don’t want to get comfortable with it. I’m attending BCTC for my associate degree in Marketing and I plan to attend the University of the Cumberlands for my Bachelor’s degree in business administration. Had I not come here, I wouldn’t have discovered what I’m truly capable of. One Parent is a safe haven, I have to say. When I first came in I thought it would be like a sorority house! But it’s not that way at all. There are all kinds of different women with different values and circumstances. I met a girl who’s a close friend now, and we talk on the porch every night. It’s very therapeutic. It’s a place where we can all understand that we’re not alone, and that this is the new normal for us all. We’re not the odd ones out. I like our monthly meetings too, and I use the computer lab almost every day. Noah is very social, and loves school here. I love his teachers. I’m a strong believer in “happy parent happy child.” If I was not here, I would not be as happy as I am, and wouldn’t be able to do my best by him.

Outreach Programs Important Hope Center work takes place outside of our walls every day. Our teams in the community are providing life-rebuilding services to those in need, no matter where they are.

Detention Center Program: The Hope Center offers a recovery program for men and women at the Fayette County Detention Center. A staff of recovering men and women guide inmate clients through a four-month intensive recovery program. Detention Center clients are also given the opportunity to continue their recovery programs after release by transitioning directly into the Hope Center’s Recovery Programs. In addition to providing life-changing, life-saving experiences to at-risk men and women, the program also saves our community thousands of tax dollars by dramatically reducing the re-arrest rate of the clients who complete the program.

HopeMobile Mobile Outreach Program: The Mobile Outreach Team works from the streets of Lexington to help homeless people wherever they might be. This team includes a nurse and two caseworkers who reach out to homeless and marginally-housed community members from a custom motor home, the HopeMobile, parked at a different downtown church location each weekday. Last year, 11,292 services were provided for people requesting assistance with basic needs including food, clothing and healthcare, and referrals for shelter, counseling and job training at the Hope Center and other agencies.

The Hope Center wishes to thank Baptist Health for their generous and continual support of the HopeMobile and the Mobile Outreach Program.

Find more information online at, or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected]

Larry McCoy

“We are all traveling to the same destination; the difference is we all travel different paths to get there.” Hope Center volunteer Larry McCoy did something that many people only talk about doing: he decided to check off the items on his bucket list. When Larry was going through treatment for prostate cancer, he vowed that when he was healthy again, he would provide a meal for the homeless of Lexington. He kept his promise and crossed one of the items off of his list by organizing a huge picnic for every single client at the Hope Center’s Loudon Avenue campus. He purchased hundreds of hot dogs and hamburgers, and even arranged for live music. The picnic was a hit - it was featured on the news, and the clients were genuinely appreciative of Larry’s generosity. Most people would stop there, but not Larry. He decided to make the picnic an annual event, and it’s been going strong since 2012. In 2014, Larry arranged for over 100 blankets to be donated to the Men’s Emergency Shelter as part of the festivities, and in 2015 there were speakers, bands, and more food than ever. After attending the Hope Center’s 20th anniversary celebration and touring the Veterans area of the Men’s Emergency Shelter in 2013, Larry felt compelled to do something special for our Vets during the holiday season. He worked with Longhorn Steakhouse to arrange a catered dinner for all of our Veterans Program clients, who enjoyed a full steak dinner, served by Larry’s family and friends. Larry then presented the clients with a custom piece of artwork for the Veterans Program common room. Larry decided to keep the tradition going and in 2014, provided a catered BBQ dinner for our homeless veterans. Larry and his wife, DeeDee, have gone above and beyond to serve the clients of the Hope Center. Their generosity and compassion for others is an outward expression of their faith. Larry says, “It took cancer to make me realize that we are all traveling to the same destination; the difference is we all travel different paths to get there.” The Hope Center is grateful to have Larry McCoy on our side — someone who has chosen a path of action and service, with a warm smile and a giving heart.

Second Presbyterian Church

“The work of the Hope Center…is a ministry we joyfully and proudly support.” - Rev. Dan Hans Second Presbyterian Church, now celebrating 200 years, has a long history of service to others in our community. Since 1994, the clergy, staff and members of Second Presbyterian have offered their time, skills and financial support to the Hope Center. For over two decades, they have supported our annual Thanksgiving dinner for homeless and recovery clients. Volunteers from Second Presbyterian serve dinner at the Jacobs Hope Cafeteria at least twice a month, and they even prepare, cook and serve a special holiday meal during our 12 Days of Christmas program. Additionally, their contributions to the HopeMobile allow us to serve the homeless of Lexington with basic health services, bag lunches and referrals to various programs. The members of Second Presbyterian are also loyal donors to our detox unit, providing coffee to our clients who are at their most vulnerable. In the 23 years since the Hope Center opened its doors, Second Presbyterian has been one of our most steadfast supporters, donating hundreds of volunteer hours, food and supplies, and over $140,000 in financial contributions. “The work of the Hope Center in responding to the need for hope for people struggling with addiction, unemployment and homelessness is a ministry we joyfully and proudly support,” says Rev. Daniel Hans, pastor at Second Presbyterian. “Second Presbyterian Church commits 20% of its budget annually to support mission work. Each year, we are glad to include the Hope Center as one of our local mission projects,” Rev. Hans adds. “We are grateful for the privilege of partnering with the Hope Center.” The Hope Center, in turn, is grateful for the kindness and generosity shown by Second Presbyterian Church.

WHERE WE’VE BEEN Recovery Leaders Converge to Help Battle Addiction:

Many great recovery minds came together on May 7 at the Hope Center’s Privett Center when we hosted Congressman Andy Barr and White House Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Michael Botticelli. Over 30 narcotics recovery experts focused on education and prevention, law enforcement, and treatment and recovery efforts. Director Botticelli, who meets with groups such as this one all over the country, spoke of how addiction is not just a Kentucky issue, but a national issue. He touched on the problems he sees nationwide, including a lack of transitional housing for those leaving a recovery program, lack of jobs for those in recovery, the need to work more closely with those in the medical profession regarding both addiction treatment and prescription, children born addicted, and early prevention. “We all want people to be in long-term therapy. The divide between therapies undermines all of our work,” he said. Congressman Barr announced the creation of the Sixth Congressional District Drug Abuse Task Force, whose mission will be to advise him on possible policy and legislative solutions as well as identifying needed resources. “To battle drug abuse and addiction we need all of our best practices working together,” Barr said.

Randy Breeding Volunteer of the Year Award:

At the 2014 Ball Homes Night of Hope, the Hope Center awarded the very first Randy Breeding Volunteer of the Year award, in honor of the late Randy Breeding, a longtime Hope Center board member and donor. Dave Norat has been a Hope Center volunteer for 11 years, after retiring from the Department of Public Advocacy. He teaches Life Skills classes, and assists the development team with events, most notably the annual Christmas party. The Randy Breeding Volunteer of the Year Award will be awarded to a deserving Hope Center volunteer or volunteer group each year.

Efforts Combine to Help 800 Families in Need:

In July 2015, Hope Center was honored to once again partner with Feed the Children and Fazoli’s for a distribution event. Volunteers from Fazoli’s and the Hope Center distributed food, household supplies and personal care items to 800 needy families in Lexington. We want to thank Fazoli’s, Feed the Children, Ball Homes for the use of their forklift, our community partners for directing families to the event, and our recovery client volunteers for assisting with the distribution!

WHERE WE’re going Expansion of Women’s Center:

Since 2002, The Ball Quantrell-Jones Recovery Center has been home to the Hope Center Recovery Program for Women. The program and facility have been full since the program’s inception, housing 80 women on average. In 2015 the Hope Center board approved an expansion of the Women’s Recovery Center to accommodate 100 women. “It’s been a long time coming, but we are excited and ready for this renovation,” says Stephanie Raglin, Assistant Director of the Women’s Recovery Program. “It is an awesome thing, to be able to give hope to 20 more women through this expansion.” Construction is expected to begin in Fall of 2015.

New Men’s Permanent Housing Development:

As affordable housing becomes increasingly difficult to find, Hope Center has made a commitment to those clients who have chosen to overcome addiction by helping them with affordable housing after completing a recovery program. Our existing permanent housing facilities, Hill Rise Place and the Barbara H. Rouse Apartments, have been consistently full since they were built. For many clients, these apartments have been the first homes they’ve had on their own. Most importantly, these apartments have allowed recovering addicts and alcoholics to have independence, with a sober safety net. In 2016, the Hope Center will begin construction on a new permanent housing facility on West Loudon Avenue. This 48-unit complex for men will also feature community rooms for NA/AA meetings, a tenant council, and access to Hope Center resources. “A critical demand for our clients who are rebuilding their lives is safe, affordable housing that supports their recovery and new way of life. Our new permanent housing building will address and serve exactly this need, giving our clients a better chance to stay on their new path of self-sufficiency,” said Cecil Dunn, Executive Director of the Hope Center. hope center annual report | 2014-2015
