What is Hope Ministries?

Hope Ministries is not a building or a set of programs or a group of staff members. We have all those things, but those things are not Hope Ministries. Hope Ministries is you. And me. And the rest of the body of Christ in our local community coming together to love our neighbors - the local people and families who need our help. Hope has always been a broad-based community effort. We are funded by the gifts of thousands of local people. Volunteers play a critical role in every aspect of our program. Partner churches and agencies provide many of the services our residents need while living at Hope. And local churches and people provide the long-term love, support and community our residents need after graduating from Hope. This is your ministry just as much as it is mine. So please contact us and let’s talk about how, together, we can respond to God’s call to love our neighbors.
