Providing food, clothing and promoting self-sufficiency for people in need.
Heartland Hope Mission provides a week's supply of food to the working poor in our community. Hygiene items and clothing are also provided at no cost. Our first goal is to prevent families from becoming homeless by providing them with basic necessities. Our second goal is to help families become self-sufficient. Case managers work with these families to connect them to the resources and education opportunities they need. Additionally, financial classes are provided.
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.
