Brick Path of Hope, Help & Healing

The “Path of Hope, Help and Healing” serves as a brick paver entry court for the Chapel on our Mt. Vernon Main Campus location. Your brick paver contribution will make you a permanent part of Spero’s 100+ years of history. More importantly, it will serve as a daily reminder of the support we have from people like you. Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness in supporting Spero Family Services.


The Legacy Circle has been established to encourage donors to take advantage of planned giving vehicles and to recognize those who make a commitment to the future of this ministry. Many planned gifts can actually be of benefit to the donor and also assist with long-term needs.
