Thanksgiving is next week! Although this year’s holiday season will be celebrated differently, there are still many reasons to be thankful. What is it that you are thankful for?

God is at work at Star of Hope! Many of our residents come to our doors in need of food and shelter, but they leave with so much more.

Every year, Star of Hope’s Youth Ministry holds a graduation celebration for the teens who have finished high school, and are entering a new stage in life.

Throughout the years we have been a shelter for those seeking a new start and true-life change. Today, with your generous […]
