Project HELP is celebrating 25 years
of serving the community!

Join us as we hear from our keynote speaker, Steve Pemberton.

Each attendee will receive a copy of Steve Pemberton’s book, A Chance in the World: An Orphan Boy, a Mysterious Past, and How He Found a Place Called Home, and Mr. Pemberton will be available to sign copies of his book following our breakfast.

This will be an amazing morning you won’t want to miss!

Steve Pemberton’s powerful story is about defying the seemingly insurmountable odds of the path of the unchosen. Orphaned into foster care, he is abandoned and betrayed by the very individuals entrusted with his care. Yet these challenges only fuel his desire to become what he never had and in so doing find success as a trail-blazing corporate executive, enlightened people leader, visionary youth advocate and acclaimed speaker. His critically acclaimed, best-selling memoir, A Chance in the World, recounts his triumphant life journey and drive to become a man of resilience, determination and vision. Now an upcoming major motion picture, A Chance in the World further amplifies Steve’s highly motivational messages: Believe in your dreams, rise above obstacles, create opportunities for others, and most of all, persevere.
