Refuge of Hope

Feasibility Study

As the meal ministry and mens’ shelter of downtown Canton’s Refuge of Hope continues to grow, the staff has begun to consider the need for a larger space where they can expand their offerings to clients and continue to do the good work for which they’ve become known. This summer found them conducting a feasibility study – a series of conversations with potential donors and granting organizations – to see if they could generate enough goodwill and financial commitment to the project before starting a full-scale capital campaign. Pleased with our efforts on their website, they turned to Cassel Bear to create a piece that continued the visual brand we established online, brought some new language to the their mission and vision, laid out the need for a new space, and highlighted the proposed plan. This succinct piece was used in meetings to give people a brief glimpse into potential next steps. The upshot? Refuge of Hope is moving forward!
