Summer of Hope!

This month was filled with many blessings for the children staying at Star of Hope. Our children’s staff were diligent in their efforts to create fun-filled and educational activities for them. The highlight: attending Summer Camp! Thanks to the support of a generous sponsor, 67 children, aged 6 to 12, went to camp! Each child […]

Let Summer Begin!

What child doesn’t love the start of summer? The school year is behind them, and they are looking forward to time spent with friends and family hanging out at the pool, going to camp, barbecuing and a host of other activities and events.

Every day, men who come to the Men’s Development Center are tired of living in misery apart from God. Through worship services, Bible studies and prayer, they turn their lives around. Their physical needs are met, and the chains of addiction and life-long destructive habits break as they yield to the love and care of […]
