The Cooper House will conduct a virtual fundraiser Nov. 18-19 with a goal of raising $1 million.
The Cooper House, a nonprofit that supports birth parents throughout the foster care process, needs funds to purchase a home in downtown Noblesville. When a home is purchased, The Cooper House — a nonprofit — will be able to provide more services to Hamilton County families and kids in the Dept. of Child Services’ system.
The virtual fundraiser, called “A Home for Hope,” will offer giveaways and educational content about foster care while requesting donations from viewers.
“The money that is raised over the course of those two days will go specifically to purchase a home in the downtown Noblesville area,” said Westfield resident Brooke Howe, founder of The Cooper House. “We are currently serving families and kiddos and parents in DCS in (a variety of) ways right now. However, to start fully serving our families with visitation space and support groups and parenting classes, we need our own home. That’s the goal.”
Howe is confident the fundraiser will meet the $1 million goal.
“We have videos from a birth parent perspective, and we have a video coming out from a former foster youth in the area who has shared and explained why a house will be so transformational for families in crises,” Howe said. “So, that’s how it’ll look like, rolling out content, asking people to donate and raising money specifically for this home that we can purchase. We will have some fun giveaways as part of it.”
The fundraiser will be conducted on The Cooper House’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
