December 2019
The Gift of Hope
Many people in our community just like Hannah are in need of help, and churches and non-profits are stepping in to do just that, but no one church, non-profit, program or person can do it all.

You can demonstrate God’s compassion and care for those who need help and hope by connecting and equipping a diverse network of 100 Christ-centered churches and non-profits to build stronger, more effective programs in our community.

Without you, none of this is possible.

Double the impact of your gift —a generous donor will match all one-time gifts made by December 31, 2019 AND if you become a monthly donor, your gifts are matched for a whole year!
