Are You Ready for Draft Day?

Holt’s House of Hope’s All-Star Team continues to recruite team members for our new sponsorship program. Holt’s House of Hope provides refuge, restoration, and hope to over 100 kids from Boca Chica each week. It is our hope to find team members to sponsor each and every one of our boys and girls. If you would like to be drafted for the team, sign up to sponsor a girl, boy, or both today!!!

Holt’s All-Star Team

At Holt’s House of Hope, we offer two levels of team membership: Player or Coach. By placing your name on our roster, you give a child access to hot nutrious meals, spiritual guidance, educational support, and encouragment at both levels. Becoming a Coach offers your sponsored boy or girl the added benefit of medical assistance and school support including uniforms and supplies which are necessary for school attendance in Boca Chica. Most importantly, your prayers and encouragement as part of Holt’s All-Star Team can offer hope to children who sometimes feel their situation is hopeless.

Heart to Table Cookbook

     The Holt Rowland Foundation in conjunction with Bridge Community Church has created a cookbook to inspire you to bring a piece of your heart to the table each time you cook one of the delicious recipes. The cookbook includes many tried and true recipes by some of the best cooks at Bridge Community along with a few of Holt’s favorite family recipes. The proceeds from the cookbook will benefit our boys and girls ministry at Holt’s House of Hope in Boca Chica.

New Normal

For people who know my husband and me, you know that neither Dave nor I are big talkers. We are not people who like the spotlight or attention. Often times, we are the ones choosing to listen to others rather than speaking ourselves. I am sure my students at school...
