Please join us for the 17th annual Women of Hope luncheon. Featuring special guest speaker, Mauri Melander Friestleben, sharing her inspiring story about the power of hope to transform lives.


This year’s Women of Hope will celebrate the power of hope to change the trajectory of a teen’s life—and highlight how each of us can take part in the mission to end hopelessness among teens.




Be inspired as you learn about the transformative power of hope in one Minneapolis school and community.
