Brandy is slated to appear at Duffy Samuel’s annual charity basketball game. The annual celebrity basketball game has become a major resource of promoting the importance of adult involvement in the lives of youth and the need for continual financial support of youth based programs. Money generated from the celebrity games help to maintain our youth programs and allow Duffy’s Hope, Inc. to expand its services throughout the state.
The mission of Duffy’s Hope, Inc. is to advance community hope by fostering the academic achievement and social enrichment of at-risk youth through advocacy, education, mentoring and community outreach. To meet our mission, our year-round H.O.P.E. (Helping Our young People Excel) Mentor Program, in partnership with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Delaware, has been active and growing for more than ten years. Additionally, Duffy’s Hope, Inc. facilitates an eight-week summer basketball program for area at-risk boys; we proudly announced our first girls’ league this season. The focus of both of our programs is to provide intervention, resources and safe-havens for area youth.
