"We feel like we've gained a sister," said Tashyra Bernard from Hope Restores in a WXOW News 19 story that includes Sister Karen Neuser. "It's been just really, really beautiful, the relationship that we've been able to foster."

This bond is blossoming between FSPA and Hope Restores, an organization “founded to “… support, advocate, listen, and bridge the gap between African Americans in our [Western Wisconsin] community.” Committed to “celebrate authentic unity in diversity by challenging our white privilege and working toward equity and inclusion of all,” FSPA jumped at the opportunity to support Hope Restores with a $200,000 grant each year for three years.
