Community of Hope Seeks Qualified Partners for Creative Emotional Wellness Programs for its New Family Success Center.
Community of Hope (COH), a 40-year old nonprofit organization, advances its mission to improve health and end family homelessness to make Washington, DC more equitable. In early 2020, COH was awarded funds from the District of Columbia Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) to operate a neighborhood-based, neighborhood-driven, and neighborhood-led Family Success Center aimed at reducing disparities and creating stronger and more resilient families in the Bellevue neighborhood of Washington, DC. – The Bellevue Family Success Center.
This Bellevue Family Success Center is located at Community of Hope’s Conway Health and Resource Center at 4 Atlantic St, SW. COH’s vision for the Bellevue Family Success Center is to be a place where families feel welcomed, respected, and valued upon entering the building, and where families can get the services they need in a timely manner. COH’s goal for the Bellevue Family Success Center is to improve health and reduce inequities, with a focus on emotional wellness through community engagement, continued evidence-based practices, collaboration, integrated health care, and social services.
Over the past spring, we hosted conversations with Bellevue residents who recommended that we increase opportunities for emotional wellness programs. We are seeking qualified applicants to implement creative ways to support emotional wellness and self-care. Examples might include: art therapy, gardening, meditation, holistic health (social connections, finding meaning and understanding for life), mindfulness, fitness, etc. Applicants may be nonprofit agencies, for profit companies, or qualified individuals. Preference will be given to qualified organizations and individuals who have experience working in the Bellevue community.
If you are a community-based enterprise, nonprofit, for profit, or individual who meet the criteria of this request, we encourage you to apply no later than Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 5pm. Late submissions will not be considered.
