The Paxton Trust supporters and volunteers showed up at Mobile Hope before the holidays to create a YOUTH LOUNGE so the kids have a place to feel “at home.” Supporters from our community donated everything needed to create an exciting space for the youth– an XBOX gaming system, games, a big flatscreen TV, a table, chairs, and board games among other fun things. In addition, organizations like St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, the Leesburg Garden Club, and generous individuals donated lots of gift cards to Target, Giant, and many local restaurants for Mobile Hope to give to the kids as needs arise or to spread holiday cheer.
Mobile Hope is dedicated to providing help and hope for Loudoun’s homeless and at-risk teens. Mobile Hope works to create positive changes in the kids that visit their center, guiding them through their challenges to become self-sufficient young adults. Mobile Hope strives to provide care and support to help children or young adults reunite with their families; find employment, housing, or transportation.
