OHU Employee Appreciation Week 2016!

One Hope United’s recent Employee Appreciation Week was a huge hit!

Our employees work very hard every single day to support the mission and vision of our organization. Therefore, we wanted to take time to recognize all that they do by hosting an Employee Appreciation Week dedicated to showing our appreciation. This was a week for our staff to have fun and pat themselves on the back because they truly deserve it.




Each day of Employee Appreciation Week was lead by a different theme, from Healthy Start, Healthy You Day to R&R Day! Everyone had a blast and we have the photos to prove it! Check out a few photos from the fun week below and click through to view the full Facebook photo album.

Diana Rauner Visits Busy Bee Children’s Center!

Diana Rauner Visits Busy Bee Children’s Center!

We are very excited that our Busy Bee Children’s Center was recently featured in the Chicago Tribune alongside Diana Rauner, the wife of Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner!

Mrs. Rauner’s visit was sparked by an initiative to increase access to early childhood education, including programs that start well before typical preschool ages. The article also touched on OHU’s home-visiting programs which support new parents, particularly teens and single parents, with pregnancy, preparing for their child’s birth and learning to care for a newborn.

Mrs. Rauner shared, “Efforts to help children from low-income families succeed in school won’t be as effective without programs that help parents of at-risk children from pregnancy onwards.”

Gingerbread Houses of Hope 2015

The 7th annual Gingerbread Houses of Hope took place on December 4, 2015, to raise money for One Hope United! With holiday music in the background, children, parents and grandparents of the Lindenhurst/Lake Villa area, used buckets of icing to attach the sugary decorations to their masterpieces that ranged from simple to highly ornate. Gingerbread Houses of Hope was the idea of the children of OHU Board member, Scott Moeller, and they have continued to host this family-friendly event year after year.

Over the last 7 years, this event has increased the community’s awareness of OHU’s mission and services and have raised a total of more than $12,000! This year was extra special, featuring guest stars Anna and Elsa from the movie Frozen, adding a great deal of fun!

This year, more than 100 people came out to decorate, and after expenses raised over $1,300 for One Hope United!

Lovin Oven Cakery, Jelly Belly and Mariano’s were generous supporters of this holiday community event.
