First Presbyterian Church of Everett partnered with the Hoff Foundation and others to host the Queen, It's a New Day event at the Embassy Suites hotel earlier this month. The two-day program is for women in transitional housing or recovery programs that includes makeovers, life-skills classes and other support.
The goal was to build upon that cloud-nine feeling to further help women who have struggled with homelessness, substance abuse, domestic violence and other hardships.
The Hoff Foundation now runs Esther's Place, a day center for homeless women and children housed at First PC of Everett.
