Bringing hopes & dreams to life

Spirit of Hope LOGO

Liberation Programs celebrated our seventh annual Spirit of Hope benefit dinner on Wednesday, April 30 with nearly 250 guests. Linda and Vince McMahon and Enterprise Community Investment were the honorees at this year’s event. A gift from the Vince and Linda McMahon Family Foundation is helping create a new treatment center for women and children. Enterprise has been instrumental in transforming the dream of Gini’s House into reality.

Please take a moment to watch this year's presentation video.

Gini’s House will provide 18 units of supportive housing for families and be the home of the Linda & Vince McMahon Center for Women and Children.

The event raised more than $100,000 to continue to help provide critical support services including housing and access to physical and mental health services for pregnant women and mothers working to overcome substance abuse disorders, including the new center and Gini’s House.

Keynote speaker Nancy Ramirez, a 1997 graduate of Liberation’s Families in Recovery Program, cited her two children as the motivation for her to change her life. Now a certified nursing assistant and daily life skills coach, Nancy has been sober for 17 years with plans to become a certified substance abuse counselor. She and her husband recently purchased their first home. As Nancy shared, “I will always give back to the Families in Recovery Program at Liberation because of what they gave me – I was able to find myself. And life gave me an opportunity to be the best mom I can be for my children. I have gone from homeless to homeowner.”

Spirit of Hope Co-chairs Katrina Bischoff and Amy Rabenhorst, along with our amazing event committee, made this a night to remember! See photos from the evening here!
