Hands of Hope – Emergency Food Assistance

“Are approach is about meeting spiritual, emotional and physical needs, that starts with building relationships.  Meeting physical needs such as hunger helps us build trusted relationships that open doors to allow us the opportunity to address deeper, underlying issues and ultimately, to improve their situation for the long haul” – Mike Conklin, Executive Director


Emergency Assistance & More

Our first focus is on addressing immediate needs with emergency assistance.  Emergency food assistance is the cornerstone of our Hands of Hope program.  In addition, we provide children’s clothing, monthly meals and light household items.

Beyond just providing for physical needs, we also offer financial literacy and basic budgeting classes, biblical counseling, computer education and job counseling as well as assistance with resumes, job search and interviewing skills.
