Tracey’s Place of Hope Ribbon Cutting
October 14 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The Biletnikoff Foundation and Partners Completes Rebuilding Project
Loomis, California – The Biletnikoff Foundation, led by NFL Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff and wife Angela are pleased to announce a ribbon cutting ceremony for the final renovation of Tracey’s Place of Hope in the town of Loomis scheduled for Friday, October 14 at 1:00 pm. This final phase of the rebuild, led by HomeAid Sacramento, puts the final additions in creating the outdoor, therapeutic garden.
Raiders Legend, Fred Biletnikoff, and wife Angela along with the Biletnikoff Foundation will gather at Tracey’s Place of Hope and celebrate the accomplishment. Special guests, partners, program facilitators, and city and county officials are expected. The Biletnikoff Foundation raised over $1.5 million dollars in both monetary donations and in-kind services throughout the rebuilding project.
Tracey’s Place of Hope is among several shelters daily run by Koinonia Homes for Teens. This home welcomes young girls who have endured drug addictions, domestic abuse, and human trafficking.
The ribbon cutting marks a milestone of collaborative support, totaling three important phases of construction, featuring added sleeping quarters, communal spaces, learning and counseling offices, and the healing gardens. Since 2016 the home has developed from ground up, specifically designed to accommodate the educational and counseling needs of the program.
“It is great to witness what once was an aging home come to life,” said Ron Loder, one of the partners leading the construction of Phases 1-2. “With events such as COVID-19 created setbacks far from our control, but the Biletnikoff Foundation and contributors fought through the adversity to put the finishes on this well-constructed home. The girls are grateful and deserving.”
“Phase three, the final phase, is complete!” exclaims Angela Biletnikoff. “Through this whole experience Fred and I have seen amazing girls get back on their feet and live enriched lives. Every stage of reconstruction from all our supporters is significant. We are proud.”
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will acknowledge 100 Biletnikoff Foundation supporters.
