Yvonne's Hope 4 Change is a newly formed Non-profit organization devoted to making a difference in the community. We provide a long-term, transitional home which will offer outstanding educational and social programs for pregnant women and women with children. Yvonne’s Hope 4 Change is sure to benefit all residents in our city and the surrounding areas.

The Executive Director, Melissa Grant is the driving force behind the organization. When she was just 12 years old and her sister was 18 and pregnant, Melissa & her family became homeless with nowhere to turn. Melissa always promised herself that when she was on her own, her family would always have a place to live. With that promise in mind, she bought her first house at 32 years old and her second when she was 34. That experience has enabled her to see the need to raise the profile of Transitional housing within the community. It has also given her the motivation and desire that will make a significant impact on fundraising activities.

Please contact Melissa Grant at 862-244-1058 or email: elvenia@hotmail.com with questions or for more information on the organization.
