iHelpHope’s purpose is to help at-risk and vulnerable children and youth globally with the hope of: Helping Opportunities Provide Emergence from the cycle of poverty. Helping Opportunities Provide Empowerment towards human flourishing. Helping Opportunities Provide Education making all of this a possibility. iHelpHope is a vision to empower and educate children globally who find themselves trapped by the cycle of poverty, orphaned, or find themselves homeless and giving them the best chance possible to emerge from those circumstances and to begin to flourish and thrive. Help move iHelpHope from an individual effort to an effective global reality. Funds are needed to make iHelpHope an official 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. Federal and State filing fees, branding and marketing, website creation are the beginnings of turning iHelpHope loose into the world to empower at risk and vulnerable children. ZAMBIA, located in the heart of south-central Africa, is home to more than 14 million people, the majority of whom live on $1.25 or less a day. A peaceful country since gaining its independence in 1964, Zambia is now confronting one of its greatest challenges: how to respond to one of the highest per capita orphan rates in the world — more than 1.4 million and counting. SPRINGFIELD, MO - Community Partnership of the Ozarks’ Continuum of Care and the Homeless Youth Subcommittee along with The Kitchen Inc. unveiled results of the 2014 High-Risk and Homeless Youth Survey. This is the fourth survey of Springfield’s high-risk and homeless youth since 2007. Findings of the report show that the number one reason youth are becoming homeless is because they are being kicked out by their parents. This reason increased from the number three spot just two years prior. Other reasons included lots of arguments at home, verbal abuse, feeling unsafe at home, and physical abuse. The full report can be downloaded at www.commpartnership.org/homelessyouth. “While personal concern is sustained by a continuously growing faith in the value and meaning of life, the deepest motivation for leading our fellow human beings to the future is hope. For hope makes it possible to look beyond the fulfillment of urgent wishes and pressing desires and offers a vision beyond human suffering and even beyond death…Without hope, we will never be able to see value and meaning in the encounter with a decaying human being and become personally concerned.” The Wounded Healer Henry J.
