90th Anniversary Celebration
The Newton community, supporters, and staff joined together Saturday June 23, to help EmberHope Youthville celebrate 90 years of providing quality services to children and families. A short recognition ceremony kicked off a day filled with fun and family-friendly yard games. The Newton Fire Department came out to offer a respite from the heat by spraying the crowd. The Cora Groom Chapel, Libbey Hall, Ward Hall, Bogue Cottage, and the Martin K. Eby Learning Center were opened for attendees to tour and participate in different activities including a scavenger hunt, a Walk A Mile exhibit, and historical display.
Consuelo’s Street Grill, Twisted Joes on the Go, and Ken N Barbie’z Rollin’ Diner were on hand serving up some tasty food.

EmberHope Youthville’s Christmas Connections allows you to connect with a foster child during the Christmas Season. You can request an ornament or pick one up at one of our church partners. This year, the gift requests include the following: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read. Ornaments provide the age and gender of a child, as well as clothing sizes. Gifts can be dropped off at EmberHope Youthville (please call first) or pick up can be arranged.
