Families of Hope 2017-2018

Harford County Families of Hope logo

Families of Hope is a publicity campaign and fundraiser organized by The SUCCESS Project to build awareness about the many local families right here in Harford County struggling to realize the American Dream.

With the help of a variety of churches, agencies and support organizations, not to mention mentoring from private parties, these individuals are working hard to achieve or regain economic self-sufficiency.

Because they continue to work towards and are hitting their goals, they serve as a Beacon of Hope for others. So for that, and for their personal efforts, we want to celebrate and support them and that's what this event is all about.

Meet the 2017-2018 Families of Hope Nominees

Nominees in the 2018 Campaign are sponsored by individuals who have promised to serve as mentors as well as provide support and inspiration. Each nominee in the campaign will vote for one of their co-nominees to earn the title of "2018 Family of Hope" and the family with the most votes will be announced at the Celebration of Hope Gala on November 3rd.
