Did You Know?
In Brazil, there are millions of street children. They suffer every imaginable form of abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation. Kids only survive an average of three to four years on the streets. These children desperately need a new beginning.
Hope Unlimited’s award-winning program ministers to the physical, educational, and spiritual needs of Brazil’s street children who live in mortal risk. Using a comprehensive Christ-centered model, these children experience personal transformation while being equipped to live successful, productive lives as adult members of society.
Hope’s Mission is to transform the lives of children at mortal risk, providing them and their future generations a productive future and eternal hope
Cypress and its employees are committed to the mission and vision of Hope Unlimited. Paul A. Willis, CEO and President of Cypress is a board member and Treasurer of Hope. Furthermore, Ginger Whitacre’s kindergarten class has a remarkable correspondence program ongoing between the Hope Unlimited school in Campinas, Brazil and her class in Pensacola, Florida. Although worlds apart in distance and culture, both groups of students have become friends and are learning firsthand the culture of another country. Ginger believes that it is critical to allow our children to see the world beyond their own lives and strive to understand the struggles and hopes of children thousands of miles removed. In a small way, this type of cross-cultural exchange, plants the seeds of understanding that will produce fruit as our children become young adults.
