2024 Annual Fundraising Gala Supporting Homes Giving Hope

Support Team

Sara Boven (Co-founder)

Executive Director

“Homes Giving Hope allows me to serve a population that often gets missed in life. God has created each resident fearfully and wonderfully in His image. I have loved learning about each person individually and helping them grow towards independence in their own ways.”

My name is Sara and I am a wife and mom of three children. I spent the beginning of my career as a teacher. As my family grew and my talents and interests changed, I decided to take a leap of faith and leave education in order to be a full-time mom and part time Career Coach with the ACE Project. For the past three years, I have worked to help individuals with unique abilities discover their own talents and interests, and develop pre-employment skills and training to help establish future employment success.

My husband Brian and I are passionate about planting seeds of hope right in our hometown of Rockford. God has called us to invest into Homes Giving Hope and we feel honored and blessed to be a part of this mission.
