Hope Ministries wants community involvement with sponsorships

Posted:

Hope Ministries is asking for community involvement with their new sponsorship program.  Hope Ministries serves one hundred men, women, and children who's lives have become unmanageable and they have no where else to live. 

The sponsorship program covers a single adult or a family, providing housing, food, classes, and mentoring programs to help get guests back on their feet and into the community.  The Director of Community Relations, Jessie Stlltzfus, says they are asking for more than a monetary donation.  They are asking for a personal involvement with the program.  "Our hope for the community is that we have people who not only give money to Hope Ministries for the processes of our resident in healing and transforming, experiencing change, and then being able to thrive in their future," Stlltzfus said, "but our hope is that people want to be involved in that process."

It costs $333 to sponsor a single adult or $625 to sponsor a family for one month.  People are able to do partial sponsorships.  Hope will send a monthly email highlighting the story of a person or family currently at Hope.  For more information contact Jessie at (574) 235-4150 x231.
