For 34 years, Community of Hope has provided hope and stability to low-income and homeless adults and children in DC. Our holistic range of programs - from healthcare to housing with supportive services and programs promoting strong families - helps underserved residents create stable lives for themselves and promising futures for their children.
We’re excited to feature a volunteer who put her talents to use to create two stunning and unique quilts that were recently displayed at our annual event, A ‘Sparkling’ Night of Hope.
That talented volunteer is Carolyn McShane, avid quilter and mother-in-law of our President and CEO, Kelly Sweeney McShane. It was a big task that took many hours of work, and the results exceeded our expectations.
Before Carolyn began quilting, our partner organization, Project Create, led art parties at our housing sites to help 30 kids and families design their own unique fabric squares. Carolyn joined the artists at Hope Apartments, where she witnessed moms lovingly help their children with their designs.
