Launched by local anti-domestic violence nonprofit, Hope House, in tandem with International Women’s History Month, the “Passport to Hope” program offers supporters the opportunity to purchase a $20 booklet featuring discounts at 26 female-owned shops and businesses (listed below) and redeemable through the end of 2023.

All proceeds from this purchase will go directly to Hope House, now in its fortieth year of service. Last year, Hope House assisted in 5,312 court advocacy cases and facilitated and monitored safe visitation and exchanges between parents for 45 new families.

The “Passport to Hope” program is overseen by the Emerging Leaders of Hope House, a subdivision of Hope House consisting of young professionals who are dedicated to ending abuse and collaborate to host a number of annual events in support of the nonprofit. The decorative passport itself was designed by Yup Yup Design and printed by Burdiss Printing.
