Our Vision – is for every community to experience Hope.
Our Mission – is to empower churches to reach, engage, serve and change the lives of people in their communities.
Our Approach – is to create a compassionate community outreach event we call Hope Day – one day filled with hope across multiple communities on the first Saturday in June.
In the last 7 years, Hope Day has partnered with Convoy of Hope and hundreds of organizations, mobilizing over 13,000 volunteers to launch Hope Day annually. We have served over 75,568 guests at 88 Hope Day Community Festivals. We have distributed over 354,000 pounds of free groceries; equivalent to over 1,340,000 meals, provided thousands of free medical and dental screenings, community & job services, served almost 93,000 hot lunches, provided close to 10,000 family portraits, distributed over 11,000 pairs of new shoes, given hundreds of free haircuts, school backpacks, games and activities for children, and much more.
Hope Day is helping build church unity within the local church community, teaching lay people how to share their faith, and giving pastors the opportunity to strategize and collaborate with other pastors…but most importantly, Hope D ay is helping reach the lost with almost 18,000 souls prayed for and over 2,500 people who made decisions for Jesus.
