Coffee House for former foster youth needs financial help to complete construction


December 8, 2011

Merry Christmas!

I hope you are having a blessed Christmas season. Covenant has launched into the Christmas season and the end of 2011 with great ambition and focus. As many of you know, Covenant purchased the HQ of Hope at 1700 North Chester in Bakersfield, CA earlier this year. We have now begun the process of remodeling. As I write, construction is happening that will allow this building to be used for generations to change lives!

First, I want to thank you. Thank you on behalf of the countless foster children, foster and biological families, and former foster youth that are served by Covenant daily. Your financial gifts enabled Covenant to purchase the HQ of Hope. Now, let’s finish the work!

We need your help to raise the remaining construction budget. We have raised $85,000.00 toward the construction/remodel costs of $168,000.00 but must raise another $83,000.00 to complete the project. To jumpstart our fundraising efforts we have re-launched the “It’s not a lot of money to a lot of people” campaign!


To raise $83,000.00 to remodel the Headquarters of Hope at 1700 N Chester Ave. for all Covenant services and a coffee-house staffed by former foster youth. This will create 8-10 jobs for former foster youth in Kern County!


Ask as many folks as possible to get involved by giving financially to help us purchase the HQ of Hope. 1000 people give $83.00 and some can give more!
