HOPE South Florida, a nonprofit organization that provides housing and shared meals for the homeless families, veterans and individuals, hosted its 20th Anniversary Gala and Silent Auction at The Venue in Wilton Manors on November 6th. This year’s event brought together supporters, clients, volunteers and staff for an exciting evening that included testimonies from the founder, Fred Scarbrough, and Josh, a former child in one of the housing programs, as well as a silent auction and live music.
The event focused on telling the story of the history and founding of HOPE South Florida. From its humble beginnings as The Shepherd’s Way, HOPE South Florida has grown from housing 11 families in 1995 and providing a weekly shared meal, to currently housing over 100 Families and veterans every night and working with local churches to serve meals 6 nights every week. All proceeds raised from the event go towards helping HOPE South Florida provide crisis and long-term restorative housing for families and veterans.
