February Jar Recipient: Hope House

FebruRY Featured Nonprofit: Hope House

We are so excited to have Hope House as the non-profit recipient of our Positive Change Jar in February! The Hope House Memphis mission is to improve the quality of life for HIV-affected individuals and their families by providing high quality early childhood education and social services.

Hope House is a catalyst for life-long change in the lives of those affected by HIV and poverty. They do this through focus on three main areas: children, adults, and community. They provide social services and early childhood education for children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, as well as prepping pre-school children for entry into kindergarten. Hope House also assists adults in obtaining education and employment to remove them from dependency and offer them a vision of economic choices for a fulfilling life. Third, they collaborate with other community resources to ensure all children and adult needs are met, and they educate the Memphis community about HIV/AIDS to both prevent the disease from spreading and to eliminate the stigma associated with it.

At Muddy’s, we don’t accept tips for our service or charge for drip coffee refills; we believe in thriveable wages for great work and we fundraise for local nonprofits through our "Refill Our Community With Positive Change" jar. Each month our staff selects a Memphis non-profit organization, and 100% of those community funds go to support their mission.

This month will be donated to Hope House. Learn more about them here. 

You can participate by, of course, throwing some change in the jar, but also by nominating a nonprofit that's making a difference in our community!
