Open Your Heart is proud to highlight our grantee partner, Rivers of Hope. Thanks to our generous supporters, Open Your Heart recently granted Rivers of Hope with funding toward financial support for victims/survivors of domestic violence. Funds will be used to provide survivors with the essentials they need to leave their abusive relationship and find safety in their lives.

Rivers of Hope is a domestic violence center providing free and confidential advocacy in Wright and Sherburne counties. In 2023, with the support of grants, including the one from Open Your Heart, and the backing from the community, Rivers of Hope served 750 adult and youth victims and survivors of domestic violence.

As they look ahead to the coming year, they are excited to announce upcoming fundraising events that will support their mission of ending domestic violence. Their Black and White Gala will be on April 26th, 2024, at the Crown Room in Rogers. This event will include a plated meal, live and silent auction, games, and speakers focused on raising awareness about domestic violence and the work done by Rivers of Hope.

In August they will be having their 2nd Annual Color Run in Big Lake and in November they hope to have their first ever Top Golf Tournament. People can stay updated on all their events and initiatives by following them on social media or by subscribing to their newsletter.

Thank you, Rivers of Hope, for everything you do!
