Mt. Hope Sanctuary

There is a place in McPherson that I have wanted to share with you for so long...I just wasn't sure that I would find the right words.  It's called Mt. Hope Sanctuary.  Its concept and implementation is amazing.  Mt. Hope Sanctuary serves single women between the ages of 18-65 who are facing hopeless circumstances due to either generational or situational poverty as a result of many of the following reasons:  Abandonment or neglect, divorce, limited education or skills, history of addictions, loss of employment, or death of a spouse. I'm no longer worried about finding the right words, because THEIR words say it all...


Again, amazing.  If you feel called to help, please visit the donation page here.  You can become a volunteer, provide specific items needed, donate online, or simply pray for this organization, its leaders and residents.

Below, you will find the list of items currently needed at Mt. Hope Sanctuary.  If you're coming to Maple Memories, we would be happy to accept your generous gifts and deliver them to Mt. Hope on your behalf.
