For Charlotte, pain and peer pressure led to a 10-year addiction to alcohol and drugs… which eventually led to jail. She knew “something was missing.” When she was released, she came looking for that “something” at Hope Ministries… and in addition to warm meals and safe shelter, she discovered the healing power of God’s love. 

There are hundreds of people in Central Iowa just like Charlotte. They come here with very basic wishes at Christmas… food to satisfy hunger… a refuge from the streets… and help to turn their lives around. 

A meal at Christmas is only $1.85. Give now to bless those who are hungry and homeless with the most wonderful Christmas gifts: food, shelter, hope… and the opportunity in our care to experience God’s healing love. 

Share your Christmas joy by sharing a generous gift now!
