In 2008, the first HopeWorks Breakfast was held as an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the year .
SInce then, the Morning of Hope has become a tradition that is anticipated by the staff and supporters of HopeWorks. It continues as a gathering where the gains of the year are commended, and the hopes for the future are proclaimed. As one of our largest fundraising initiatives of the year, the money raised contributes to the sustainability of the programs that are making a difference in Memphis; the programs that are giving hope and a job to the segments of our community that are striving to overcome generational poverty and consequences of unfortunate decisions. Help us make a difference!
