Heartland Hope Makes a Difference
Jim came to Heartland Hope Mission in a desperate situation. He had been unable to work for over a month after getting hurt on the job and now he couldn't pay his rent or buy food. In addition to a week's worth of groceries we were able to work with his family to assist with other resources they needed.
Every week Heartland Hope Mission serves the working poor, people who are disabled and those looking for a job.
Last year, over 30,000 people like Jim came to Heartland Hope Mission.
