Tallahassee, FL -- April is the National Month of Hope, and this year, the founders have announced that they will introduce the H.O.P.E.E. Awards, where recipients will be honored during a special "Celebration of Hope" Ceremony at the Cascades Park Amphitheater in Tallahassee, Florida on Sunday, April 21, 2019 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm EST.

Seeing the impact that hope can have on people's lives, Dr. Rosalind Tompkins, founder and president of Mothers in Crisis, Inc. launched a national public awareness campaign in 2018 beginning with the designation of April as the National Month of Hope. Challenging people to 'think hope' and 'make hope connections', this inaugural campaign turned into a powerful movement of individuals joining forces and becoming citizens of hope in their own communities across the country.

Now, coinciding with the National Month of Hope, Mothers in Crisis Inc. will recognize inspiring individuals through the debut of the H.O.P.E.E. Awards (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment). These awards will be presented to those who exemplify helping others to practice enduring empowerment while spreading hope in the family, church or synagogue, school, community, marketplace, nation and world.
