The Week of HOPE
This was our first year celebrating the Week of HOPE, from March 7th – 11th, 2022. The Week of HOPE spread awareness of HOPE – Healthy Outcomes from Positive ExperiencesTM and helped people learn about the difference that positive childhood experiences can make for children, families, and those who serve them.
During this week, we held special events, shared new resources, and led deep dives into many of the sectors that practice HOPE. Throughout the week, we released episodes in a short podcast series with interviews from members of the HOPE National Resource Center and those in our network discussing each of those themes. Below, you will find the themes, past events, and resources that we released during the 2022 Week of HOPE. We look forward to sharing more about our plans for a Week of HOPE in 2023 in the coming months.
