Hopefest is an outdoor festival that includes live music, fun family-friendly activities, and much more. All proceeds from Hopefest are directed to two different recipients that care for people in need. One recipient is the STM Options Program, which enables special needs teens to receive a St. Thomas More education. The other recipient for 2024 is The Hub. The Hub: Lafayette Urban ministries is on a mission to offer everyone in our city access to a restored life. They believe a restored life has access to rescue, relationships, resources, and recovery. They fulfill their mission statement through two separate ministries. Purchased: Not for Sale: an outreach and recovery ministry for women and juvenile victims of human trafficking and women in the sex-industry. The Lovewell Center: an earning and empowering model, membership-based resource center for individuals living in homelessness and poverty that gives members the opportunity to earn the resources they need while also being equipped to leave the grips of poverty.
