The Sophie House News June 2017


Big Changes and New Beginnings with The Sophie House!

Have you been to The Sophie House website? We launched a new website last week and you will love what you see! We are here to offer support and encouragement to single women and single moms and you can see clearly how we do that as well as how you can help and get involved! We will have a new app coming soon too so you will have The Sophie House at your fingertips!

For those of you who haven’t been by yet or in a while, we have also added a new staff member, Kay Godwin! She is our front office face and the voice on the other end of the phone ready to help in any way we can! We will have pictures up on our website soon too but feel free to call and schedule a time to see what we have going on!


“When I came here for help, it meant everything to me for somebody to help me and talk through everything so I didn’t feel bad”





Huge Success – The Sophie House 5K


So Many Smiles and so much enthusiasm as we re-energized the 5K!

After taking a year off while we relocated, we came back with a new venue and new course to set things in motion – the great weather was another huge blessing!

We want to thank our wonderful sponsors for their generosity to help make this a success!

We are already looking forward to next year so be ready to get your running shoes moving again! We are so thankful to Shady Grove UMC Short Pump for hosting us on site for the festivities, Henrico County Police, and the many volunteers who made this event happen! We couldn’t have done it without you!!

Service Spotlight & Thank You to The 5K Volunteers, #SophieVolunteer

5k 2017 volunteers

This year 5k went amazingly and we would not have raised as much as we did without the help of our volunteers.

We want to thank Mark for being our race director this year. Our trusty Girl Scouts and Lori for coordinating them. Morgan for running and helping out in other areas. We loved having our community friends and much more! Thank you all for your help and dedication.

Please take a moment to look at our photos of the 5K and all who helped, at our Facebook page.

Looking to Volunteer for the summer months? #SophieVolunteer


Community service hours available as well as general ways to help…

High School Teens can work the food pantry without having an adult with them, middle schoolers could help after a session or two with an adult, however, elementary age would need an adult with them but what a great way to participate in giving back.
