The Groundwork is Being Laid!

We have some wonderful news we’d like to share everyone! This week we set the groundwork for future construction on our potential property by roughing out an access road, installing a front gate, and moving into the final stages of the survey

We recognize these as small steps in the first of many over the next few months. We trust God with this mission and we invite you to continue praying for us!

To-date we have raised over 45% of the necessary capital to pay up front for the land. Our dream is to close on this property debt free this summer, after that, God-willing: land clearing and official ground breaking! 

Be on the look out for future events where you’ll be able to visit and see what our plans look like in person!

Our Staff is Growing

After a tremendous year of financial growth in 2020, we realized that the time was right to grow our organization. We are so happy to announce our first full-time hire, Justin Adderholt. Justin will be filling our organization’s long-standing need for a Development Director. He brings 10 years of experience in marketing and advertising and an invaluable voice of consistency to Blanket Fort Hope. In this new role, he will be responsible for building relationships with donors, influencers, and vendors that will help build the presence and scope of our organization in Alabama.

In the beginning of last year, Justin came across our mission through our partnership with The Church at Brook Hills. He was so moved by our presentation, that he reached out immediately to set a meeting with Alexa. Within the next month, they had begun work on updating the brand and making plans for the new website. Since serving in a volunteer capacity for the last year, he has breathed life and consistency into our brand presence while also overseeing the launch of our brand-new website, integrating our brand standards, event promotion, and building relationships through volunteer coordination.

We are excited and confident in his abilities to help Blanket Fort Hope reach its next goal of building the restorative therapeutic center for child survivors. Please welcome Justin to our team!

Be sure to follow him on social media!

[UPDATE] An offer is accepted on land in Shelby Co, Alabama!

Our land offer has been accepted! We are officially raising funds to build our restorative therapeutic center for child survivors! Donate today to help Build the Fort.

Not a full month into 2021 and God is already doing great work! We are excited to announce we have made an offer on a beautiful 73 acre piece of property in Shelby County, Alabama! Partially developed with existing baseball fields that will continue to be leased to a nearby Christian school, and the rest ripe for development, we know this is the land God is calling us to!

We are praising God for this special opportunity to develop and build Alabama’s first home to provide dedicated therapeutic assistance to child victims of trafficking. “Fort Hope Ranch” will serve these precious children by providing them with stability, love, therapy, education, freedom, while exposing them to the Gospel truths of Jesus Christ. 

We pray you will join us in celebrating this tremendous win for Blanket Fort Hope!
