Mother's Appreciation Day 2021

May 2021

Every year Dwelling House of Hope makes a special effort to honor mothers on Mother's Day. This past year has been especially hard for mothers because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Who would know that life could change so quickly? All the plans we had were all shattered. Mothers had to adjust their schedules, working from home, losing their jobs, remote schooling their children, isolation from support networks, and loss of socializing with friends, family, and loved ones.

This year we were joined by State Senator Ed Kennedy and State Representative Vanna Howard in our efforts to lift Mothers’ sprits and let them know that they are not forgotten.
