BOISE, Idaho — During the coronavirus pandemic, it is important to remember groups that provide services for those in need are still hard at work. Faces of Hope is one of those groups, providing help for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, abuse and stalking.

When a victim arrives at Faces of Hope, they find a safety net of services. The Light of Hope 3-day giving challenge raises critical funds that will keep doors open and ensure essential needs are met.

"Every dollar that's donated will go directly to victim services, " said Paige Dinger, Faces of Hope executive director. "It could be to pay an attorney, it could be to help with crisis counseling. We are depending on our community to be generous so that we can offer this service at no charge to the clients that we see."

Faces of Hope is looking to hit a $90,000 fundraising goal and are hoping to hit that mark by Thursday night. Right now, the group is about 2/3 of the way to that goal.
