Fall Festival Fun: Professional Women in Building Council Helps Hope House Celebrate

Hope House moms and children attend Fall
Festival, supported by PWB council members

Teen moms at Hope House of Colorado, based in Arvada, are working hard to change the future for themselves and their children – and the Professional Women in Building Council of the Home Builders Association of Metro Denver is championing their efforts.

Hope House hosted its annual Fall Festival on Thursday, October 20, complete with costumes, games, contests and food for the organization’s teen moms and their children.
With Hope House on track to serve 160 teen moms this year, helping to host this event is no small feat.
Enter the Professional Women in Building Council, which helped guarantee the success of the event by providing a bouncy castle, carnival games, prizes, food and candy.
"The Professional Women in Building Council chose to support the mission of Hope House of Colorado because empowering women is a big part of our own mission statement. Adopting the Fall Festival has been one of our most rewarding team efforts to date," said Cindy Bell, PWB board member.

With over 100 teen moms and kids in attendance - and in costume - the Fall Festival was a successful event for Hope House.
“The way that the Professional Women in Building Council supported our Fall Festival shows our teen moms that they believe in them,” said Lisa Steven, Founder & Executive Director of Hope House.  “They were very hands on, manning the games and engaging with our girls. They made it a spectacular party.”
