Background Statement

In August of 2009 Back to School with Hope was birthed. A community outreach project that would serve 200 homeless children with all the basics to get ready for back to school. A project hosted by Pam’s home church and offered completely free to the families, but would require an army of volunteers and much funding. Back to School with Hope was a huge success: with over 200 volunteers and over $25,000 raised a Day of Hope was provided. Each preselected/prequalified child received a medical exam, dental exam/cleaning and floss treatment, resource for a free eye exam and reader glasses if necessary, haircut, school and family portrait, new backpack filled with all the needed school supplies, a care bag of personal care items, a $50 gift card to Bealls department store for new clothes/uniforms, a $25 gift card to Payless for new shoes, a bike helmet, bike safety instruction, a personal safety id card from the sheriff dept, etc… meals were provided throughout the day and fun things to do like nail painting, face painting, interaction with the police and their motorcycles, the local fire department brought an engine and an ambulance. Many individuals and agencies were present to share invaluable resources. It was a day that gave parents peace and kids hope!

From there a connection was made and it was important to the Day of Hope leaders to continue a relationship in the lives of these children. A Day of Hope was not to be a one day / one touch event; but rather the introduction to new formed relationships. Churches are taking it past the day by inviting the families back for church service, Sunday school, youth group, providing Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts …helping them move into better living arrangements, helping with car repair and job searches, …sponsoring kids in sports programs and for holiday programs. The list goes on…investing in the children; that’s what it’s all about. Making a difference in the lives of these students.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

My personal dream would be to have a Day of Hope in every community, Pam states, I live in a rich community, most of us do…we live in a rich country. The idea that there are homeless children breaks my heart. We look at third world countries and sadly expect to see the poverty, but in our own backyards when there is such an obvious abundance of wealth and children are going without, that is what stirs my holy discontent.

Providing homeless and needy children with a back to school event on a local church campus.  Each child receives a medical exam, dental exam/cleaning and floss treatment, eye exam, haircut, school and family portrait, new backpack filled with all the needed school supplies, a care bag of personal care items, a $50 gift card for new clothes/school uniform, a $25 Payless gift card for shoes and meals throughout the day.

Short Term Success
During 2016 Days of Hope, approximately 3,200 needy children will begin the first day of school of an even playing field with their peers resulting in better self-esteem, better attendance and better grades. 
Long Term Success
The ultimate change that will result from Days of Hope will be a community with no homeless families and all needy children productive students and contributors in their community. 
Program Success Monitoring
Manatee and Sarasota Schools administration and guidance counselors track improved attendance and grades for students participating in a Day of Hope. The program has grown from 200 students in 2009 to serving approximately 3,200 in 2016.   
Program Success Examples
Wendy Mungillo, Principal at Ballard Elementary, participated in her first Day of Hope and noticed on the first day of school the improved self-esteem and preparedness of her students that attended. She reached out to a family enrolled but not attending school and discovered they did not have the means to provide the essentials for their children to begin school.  Wendy provided all their essentials through resources from the Day of Hope and the children are now productive students at her school.

CEO/Executive Director Email

Pam Hawn is a Wife and Mom with a huge heart for her community. Throughout Pam’s life she has served with many outreaches geared specifically for the homeless…her growing up years in New York, developed Pam’s heart at an early age for the hurting and the lost. Since moving to Florida in 1981 her passion grew to help those who go without. Pam continued being involved with many organizations who shared her same passion for the homeless.

In spring of 2009 when our economy was appearing sluggish at best, Pam and her husband, Mark recognized that there was going to be a change of lifestyle. Being self employed in their family business they were beginning to feel the effect of the changing economy. At the same time Pam shares that God laid on her heart that despite the struggles she is to remember her heartbeat for the homeless and as it was getting harder for her and Mark to provide for their three children, how were the Moms and Dads in the homeless community providing for their children??

That began a passion in Pam that lives out today. Matthew 25:35-36 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
