Jake’s Network of Hope partners with other 501c3 nonprofits, school-based and faith-based groups who directly serve vulnerable people in our communities. This means our work supports diverse community needs, from foster care to after school programs, family needs and domestic abuse shelters, refugee work, poverty support, health programs and more. These collaborations mean partners can re-allocate time and money to instead focusing on their programs, while meeting human needs in the community.
We want to highlight the many ways our partners are making a difference for those most vulnerable individuals, many of whom are neighbors, peers, co-workers or connected to us in unknown ways. Poverty is more commonplace than we often think, and financial strain can often be situational and temporary. Our work ensures every individual experiencing hardship can still have their basic needs cared for and feel a sense of self worth.

When it comes to our country’s veterans, it’s never too late to say, “Thank you.” This statement is at the heart of what became the nonprofit known as Old Glory Honor Flight.
Old Glory Honor Flight is dedicated to honoring our local veterans, one mission at a time. The organization takes local veterans on a free, one day “tour of honor” to the nation’s capital to see the memorials built in their honor. Old Glory Honor Flight gives veterans an opportunity to heal, find closure, pay their respects to fallen comrades and form new friends . In general, Old Glory sees this as a meaningful way for our community to thank veterans for their service.
The organization is almost entirely volunteer run; Jake’s Network of Hope partnership is able to help the nonprofit through a partnership to support its operations.
“Our partnership with Jake’s helps stretch our limited dollars for supplies and volunteer gifts; being mostly volunteer run, I love that we can give our volunteers a nice gift without worrying too much about our budget,” stated Old Glory Honor Flight Executive Director Diane MacDonald.
In the coming months, Old Glory Honor Flight plans to utilize its partnership to supply basic hygiene needs to veterans’ homes.
A family member of a veteran that participated in a Old Glory Honor Flight stated, “My dad graduated from High School and immediately enlisted in the army. He was a proud Vietnam Veteran, serving two tours in Vietnam. His proudest moment was going on the Glory Honor Flight. The day brought him to tears often and it helped him heal.”
