🌟 Important Partner Update from Jake’s Network of Hope 🌟

Dear Valued Partners,

We hope this message finds you well. As Jake’s Network of Hope celebrates a decade of service to Eastern Wisconsin, we reflect on the incredible journey of growth and impact we’ve achieved together. Like any organization, we’ve encountered some growing hiccups, and your feedback has been instrumental in guiding our path forward.

Exciting Changes Ahead

Starting January 1, 2024, Jake’s Network of Hope will undergo a comprehensive program restructure. This decision stems from the valuable insights we gained through the partner survey you participated in last month. Your feedback highlighted the pressing needs in our community and the existing gaps we aim to address more effectively.

Transition Details

  • Hope Hub Shopping Appointments: Available through December 21, 2023. Make the most of this opportunity!
  • New Partner Applications: From January 1st, 2024, each partner—be it a nonprofit, school, or faith-based organization—will need to re-apply to join Jake’s Network of Hope. Two separate applications will be introduced:
    1. My Neighbor Program – Hope Hub Shopping
    2. Core Products (diapers, wipes, period products, adult incontinence products)
  • One-on-One Meetings: After submitting your application, you’ll receive a link to schedule a personalized one-on-one meeting with Kaci for the My Neighbor program or Sean for Core Products.
  • Ordering and Shopping: Following the meeting and approval, you’ll receive a link to order products or schedule your shopping time in the Hope Hub. Please note: You will not be able to order or shop until the 2024 application process is complete.

Our Shared Goal

At Jake’s, our primary goal is to collaborate seamlessly with our network of partners, which now includes over 300 organizations in Eastern Wisconsin. By reimagining our programs, we aspire to better serve the most pressing needs of our community.
