My Nonprofit Reviews

Review for Sparc Hope, Louisville, KY, USA
As a SPARC-Hope volunteer and donor, I have seen firsthand the love and care given to single parents in Louisville, KY and the surrounding counties. Assistance specifically for single parents is very hard to come by, especially for single moms. I have personally witnessed the relentless prayer, long hours, dedication and energy given by this small but mighty nonprofit as they go to many lengths to meet the needs necessary to assist their beloved clients. For those single parents fully participating in the Life Plan Program, no need is too small to address if it will alleviate a financial, educational, or food burden for the family. The on-campus Food Pantry has been especially beneficial as it allows single parents in the Life Plan Program to “shop” for food essentials including meat and fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as toiletries, cleaning products, and even gifts for birthdays & other special occasions. The Food Pantry is also accessible to single parents not in the Life Plan Program on a limited quarterly basis. SPARC-Hope also has many wonderful partnerships within the community to provide numerous other resources for their single parents — invaluable for supporting and building clients up. Life Plan Program clients are required to be attending institutes of higher learning and graduates have become lawyers, psychologists, nurses, trades people and more, giving back to SPARC-Hope and to the community. Children of clients are also going into institutes of higher learning! SPARC-Hope is a worthy nonprofit succeeding in making a difference in the lives of single parents and their families and in seeking to impact more. I have been blessed to play a small role in this endeavor! (Photo: Executive Director, Laura Wingfield)
