"We continue to hold our "Private shopping nights" at our Sycolin Road location two times a month, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. If you know of any children or young adults who are in need, please let them know.

We have added a "Free fresh food distribution day" every Sunday from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. This is also held at our Sycolin site. This new program is open to any members of our community who are in need of additional food services. With the amount of food we receive, we are not limiting this to children, it's open to all. We have only held 3, and already the numbers of visitors grows every time our doors open.

We also continue to go out every Wednesday night on our Mobile unit to many areas of the county. This happens from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. We are currently servicing Leesburg, Sterling and Purcellville, with expanding locations soon to come. "

Mobile Hope comes to Sterling on some Wednesdays but as indicated above you can bring a needy friend to them every Sunday.

Loudoun Times reports:

Inova Loudoun Hospital supports Mobile Hope

With support from Inova Loudoun Hospital, Mobile Hope has become its own nonprofit, a pending 501(c)(3) organization.

In 2011, Mobile Hope began under the Community Affairs Department of Inova Loudoun Hospital. It was originally intended as a wellness outreach specifically for children who were homeless or precariously housed in Loudoun County. Over the years, Mobile Hope has expanded beyond its original concept. Mobile Hope now provides clothing, food, educational items, toys, as well as health and wellness information and more for this at-risk population.

In addition to $50,000 start up funding, Inova has also donated the original Mobile Health unit bus to Mobile Hope. Inova has also committed to support funding of $150,000 over the next two years to ensure a smooth transition.
