Last year, Hopeful Horizons provided children’s advocacy, domestic violence, and rape crisis services for 1,495 survivors. These 1,495 survivors will be visually represented by flags displayed at the Hampton County Courthouse from April 17th – 20th.

The Hampton First Baptist Church held an Easter “Eggstravaganza” egg hunt on Saturday, April 15, in downtown Hampton to celebrate the Easter holiday and provide a wonderful time for children and their families.

A large gathering of children, their parents and beaming-with-joy grandparents attended the event, which offered children through sixth grade a chance at finding eggs, two being special golden eggs that brought with them extra-special gifts from a certain furry, hopping friend.
