Creativity. Curiosity. Joy. Love. Growth. Exploration.
These are some of the words that I return to again and again when I think about the amazing work our staff at One Hope United carries out every day.
Our clients are diverse, as are their needs, interests, and desires. From a young parent working to give their child the best start in life, to the teenager who may be transitioning from the juvenile justice system to living on their own, to the children in our early learning programs (like the little guy above, who spends his days growing and exploring at our Elgin Child & Family Resource Center), to the family that’s receiving counseling in order to strengthen their bond: all are part of our ecosystem of investing in children and families.
OHU has been doing what we do for over 120 years. We draw upon our rich history to inform the present and inspire future endeavors. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce our brand new website, which we hope will let visitors like you get to know more about us as an organization, and identify programs and services that you or someone you know might want to explore further.
In the coming months, we’ll be rolling out new features and stories so you can meet the clients, staff, volunteers, and supporters who comprise the core of who we are at OHU. The new onehopeunited.wpengine.com features more photos and video – along with social sharing tools – to make it a truly interactive experience. It’s also mobile friendly, so you can read on the go using your phone or tablet.
I like to think of our website as the digital front door to the organization. It’s my hope that we can convey online all that goes on behind the scenes as we work to transform lives and communities.
I know that if you were to visit any of our offices or child development centers, you’d experience the warmth, caring, and compassion that our talented staff of experienced professionals bring to their work every day. This new website hopefully gives you a glimpse of all that and compels you to get involved.
So welcome; we’re glad to have you here. Stop by and visit any time you like.
