Giving a meal to a hungry person or a bed to someone who would otherwise sleep on the street relieves their suffering. You will also see gifts that break the cycle of poverty and misery.
Lives change as people learn new job skills or improve their education. Above all, you will see how your support for Star of Hope opens people’s eyes to the love of God. Knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the best Christmas gift of all! Please look through this catalog and become an important part of the lives of the more than 6,000 residents blessed at Star of Hope each year. Thank you!
