Season of Hope

Event Details

2022 Season of Hope

  • Sep

Each year, the Season of Hope Gala celebrates the transformation and hope we see happening daily at Mel Trotter Ministries. This year's Gala will highlight and benefit the Prevention and Diversion efforts. Prevention and Diversion team members work with area schools to identify families who might be on the verge of experiencing homelessness – and keeping this traumatic event from happening.

Our keynote speaker, Tonier Cain, knows a great deal about trauma and works tirelessly to raise the awareness of trauma informed care around the world. She is an advocate and educator, speaking on trauma, addiction, incarceration, homelessness, substance abuse, and mental health. Tonier’s story is documented in her best-selling book, Healing Neen, and her award-winning film of the same name. You will hear her transformational story from trauma to hope at Season of Hope.
