Project Hope Pack


Project Hope Pack has impacted thousands of children by distributing backpacks full of necessities and comfort items to children ages 3-18 who are taken out of crisis situations. In most situations, these children are taken from their homes and are given a trash bag to gather any belongings they can carry.  The JLO’s Project Hope Pack provides filled backpacks to numerous agencies around Omaha to be given out to children at the time of their intake interview.  In addition to essential hygiene items these backpacks are a sign of hope to boost children’s spirits in hard times.

Project Hope Pack seeks monetary and tangible donations.
