Impacting Lives

Dear Friend of New Hope Ministries,

Have you ever visited a grocery store and marveled at the sheer amount of food on the shelves?

There are many for whom this isn’t available.  A volunteer in our food pantry overheard a little girl say one day, “Grandma, what if we run out again?”

Imagine being a family that can’t provide food, or lives in a motel, or is having their electricity turned off.  Imagine being a child afraid of going hungry again.

Now imagine coming to New Hope and getting help with basic needs and knowing that someone cares.  Our mission is to make sure no one goes hungry and no one has to live without hope. In a typical year, we help thousands of families with food, heating and utility assistance, rent assistance, and transportation and medical needs. We also provide opportunities for greater stability through accountability by offering job search assistance, financial literacy classes, and a GED program.

As you know, we rely upon the generosity of our supporters to help sustain our programs so we can feed the hungry and provide opportunities for growth and stability in the lives of those who turn to us for help. To support our life-changing programs, we have set a goal to raise $50,000 through our Fall Campaign. Here’s how a gift to this campaign impacts lives:

  • $1,000 could help a single mom become a Certified Nursing Assistant and gain a career that could support her family
  • $400 could help a young man get his high school diploma
  • $180 could purchase a half-ton of food for our food pantry to feed the hungry
  • $50 could provide job placement and counseling

Here’s how we’re doing so far in this year’s campaign:

Thanks to everyone who is helping us change lives as we fulfill our mission of sharing Christ’s love by meeting human needs.
