SANDPOINT — Day of Hope, a celebration of local family resources, is set to take place today.

This event will create a chance for the community to learn about resources provided by the nonprofit Idahope Families and many other local sponsors. Children and adults can also enjoy free food, games and fellowship, organizers said. 

Idahope Families, the host of the event, works to equip families in crisis with solutions for success, keeping children safe and families together during difficult times, officials said on the organization’s website. Program organizers and volunteers step in to help families during overwhelming circumstances like temporary unemployment, alcohol/drug abuse, domestic violence, medical crisis, temporary homelessness, lack of family support, temporary jail sentences, and mental health issues among other circumstances.

Bonner Homeless Transitions, NAMI Far North, Bonner Community Food Bank, and 7B Care Clinic are just a few of the many organizations that have sponsored the event and will be sharing about their services.

Day of Hope will take place at the Idahope Families parking lot, 35 Litehouse Drive, Sandpoint, on June 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
