Churches

HOPE For All helps churches remain faithful to God's calling by offering outreach and support opportunities to those struggling in our community.

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."  (Matthew 25:40)

​We welcome your prayerful consideration to participate in one of our projects:

Delivering HOPE

Join us as we pick up donations and deliver furniture directly to our clients. Experience firsthand meeting and serving our adult clients and seeing the excitement of the children as we turn a house into a home. Delivering HOPE is the perfect opportunity for an outreach ministry of your church. Lifting required.

Number of Volunteers: Up to 5

When: Saturdays

Time:  8:30 am to noon.

Supporting HOPE
  • Your financial donations can directly fund A Bed to Call My Own, our initiative that gets kids and adults who are sleeping on the floor into a new and healthy bed. Each year, we give away about 500 beds. Just $120 buys a twin mattress, box spring, and frame. A weekend poor box collection or special offering are some of the ways that your church can donate to this Supporting HOPE project.
  • Sponsor a collection of new socks and new underwear for our HOPE clients. Any time of the year is the right time for giving.

"Words can't express how grateful I am. I am a single mother with 5 children. I work hard every day and try to stay positive. I felt bad that my children had no beds. Then HOPE For All gave me hope..."
