“Thank you all so, so much in making the meals for us. I can’t thank you enough for what you people do for us citizens every day. Thank you for the people that work and volunteer at Hope House and their families, may God bless you all!”

Hope House guest Bill D.

Please accept my sincere gratitude for your help during my recent medical crisis. I have just finished being treated for cancer. While sick, my wife left me, I lost my house, my job, and was homeless. Some of the medicines I needed cost over $1000 dollars a day. My insurance covered my meds it did not cover my food bills. I had no money and only a limited amount of food stamps to survive on each month.

Not knowing where to turn, my case worker suggested Hope House as a place where I could get a meal. I came to hope house 1-2 times a day to eat. The people there provided me with 20 meals a week, not just lunch. I am have diabetes and am thankful that you do your best to provide carb free meals.
I have heard it said that it is better to serve nothing with kindness and a smile, than much with rudeness. The volunteers have been very kind to me and I look forward to volunteering, as a way to give back, when my treatments are over this fall.
“You can live without food for a long time and without drink or anything. But you cannot live without hope and without dignity”. Helen Sperling, Holocaust Survivor.

Thank you for providing us with a great service experience! We had a great time and we were glad to help out in the way you needed.

Every day I thank the Lord for the guests, volunteers, and donors who keep this place alive. May the Lord bless your continued work!

I started my day with a drop in (bringing donations) at Hope House and am again inspired by the volunteers there who pour heart and soul into making meals for folks who have nowhere to go and nothing to eat. Good people doing good things to spread good in the world.
