A crisis is a life-altering situation. It doesn't matter if someone just got out of prison and is starting all over, or a single mom struggling to get back on her feet after a divorce.  We understand that sometimes life knocks people down and they need people to show them that God cares for them and has a plan for their life.   We want people to get more than just physical items, but also develop spiritual support team as well.   We believe in giving people hand-ups not just hand-outs!  This is why we work through our church partners. The church makes connections with those who are in need and then HOPE supplies the resources for that need through the church. Often HI hosts events, where several churches and community partners can work together to meet the needs of the local area.  HI provides household furniture, clothing, food, and other basic essentials to thousands of people across the globe every year.  
There are several opportunities to serve through Crisis Relief.   This outreach includes anything from a Back-to-School-Bash where we supply backpacks full of supplies, free haircuts, eye exams, hearing screenings, physicals, etc., to mission trips sharing the gospel or doing construction work through our church partners and missionaries.  There are so many creative ways to get involved in this ministry.  If you are a hair stylist, doctor, truck driver, or just love people there is an opportunity for you to give back through Crisis Relief!
