Greetings faithful volunteers!

I’m elated that we’re able to welcome volunteers back safely to Hope House Mission. The Lord has blessed our mission in many ways, despite the pandemic, and we count you among those blessings. Many of you offered prayer for the mission and predictably the Lord showed up and answered many prayers for health and safety and financial provision. Hallelujah!

As a faith-based mission, we’ve always relied on the power of prayer when we face challenges of any kind. This year the board has been inspired by the prayer practices of our partner, City Gospel Mission, particularly their deliberate and proactive approach to prayer. As such, we’re excited to launch a new Hope House prayer ministry to elevate the power of prayer in transforming lives in our community.
