“Seeing the young girls, the hurt, watching a young girl try to find a treatment facility that would take her with her insurance. It was harder for her to get help than for me to find someone to help with my cancer.” Read more about how we got our start and how far we have come in helping to spread education and support for those survivors of sexual violence.

There are a lot of simple ways for you to get involved in recycling your daily goods and raising awareness of sexual violence. By setting up collection points throughout your city, you can be a part of change that really makes a difference in the lives of children here in the US.
I am a strong cheerleader and supporter for Cans for Hope. They have my deepest respect for their spirited and dedicated work of redeeming and recycling survivors’ lives, “one person at a time.” I appreciate their tireless efforts to raise awareness, train both teens and adults, and to support and raise funds for outstanding organizations bringing healing and new identity to those traumatized.
Cans for Hope was birthed out of the heart of Barb Murphy because God spoke LIFE into her heart. By simply saving and picking up cans we have been able to make a small difference in the lives of young people. Even our grandchildren say with great excitement: “Cans for Hope!” during our walks to the park when they spot a can. Our eyes and lives have been touched and challenged by this remarkable endeavor to recycle one life at a time.
I came to know Cans for Hope when my students, in researching potential community service projects, found the organization. It originally appealed to us because it was the perfect example of “Think Global, Act Local”. What sealed the deal of our involvement was meeting Barb and hearing her share her story and passion – we couldn’t NOT be involved! It has remained a passion for me because the idea of helping to give people, especially youth, a second chance in life is near and dear to my heart and I only hope that Thornton High School can do more!
Anyone who meets Barb is immediately drawn by her passion to help girls suffering horrific abuse. There are many who talk about doing something to help, Barb has actually done something to help by starting Cans for Hope. Barb is relentless in her pursuit to offer help organizations like Crisis Aid International. Barb Murphy and Cans for Hope has helped us to provide services to more than 40 girls who were victims of sex traffickers. If more people were like her, I think this problem could be solved. It is an honor to call her a friend and partner in this work of seeing lives transformed by the power of God and the actions of Barb and her team.
Thank you everyone even remotely associated with Cans for Hope.
Our generation carries a deep conviction to bring justice to those in need and provide a voice to those who live in the shadows. Cans for Hope has become a significant focus of our church’s local outreach because they have given us the ability to put action to our conviction. Every week people bring cans to donate toward the vision that Barb so passionately conveys. We believe that every can is helping to redeem a life and rewrite their story to one of healing and restoration. Over the years, Barb has become a dear friend to us, and we believe firmly in the mission that drives her forward. We are grateful to her and all those who support Cans for Hope through can drives and donations.
