Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County Supports Non-profit Affiliate with Upcoming Gala
Housing Opportunities Community Partners hosts its first ever fundraising event
KENSINGTON, MD -- For nearly two decades Housing Opportunities Community Partners (HOCP) has helped low-income income families in Montgomery County improve their quality of life by equipping them to reach a higher level of self-sufficiency and providing the necessary resources. This year, HOCP is amplifying its success and its programming by hosting the 2016 Inspire Gala on September 26th at the Silver Spring Civic Building.
“Community Partners has provided, or financially supported, direct service and programming to thousands of Housing Opportunity Commission (HOC) clients. In its role as an incubator for new service delivery strategies, HOCP allows the agency the opportunity to test innovative solutions to community needs,” said Executive Director Stacy L. Spann.
The Inspire Gala will allow HOCP to expand its reach to more households in need of enrichment programming and housing stability. While federal funding often makes deeply affordable housing possible in Montgomery County, there is a tremendous gap between providing housing and helping those same families reach greater self sufficiency. Because HOC uses its own resource and infrastructure, money raised by HOCP goes directly to providing services for families and children.
On September 26th, attendees will celebrate the way HOCP programming supports the community. Through inspiring stories and presentations, attendees will learn how HOCP supports families as they share their own stories. Over the course of the evening, participants will become more familiar with the critical resources that allow every child and every family to move closer towards their vision of success. Outstanding corporate and community partners will also be honored throughout the event.
