Family Promise
By supporting low-income homeless families, we raise funds through the annual bed race, member donations and fundraising. Provide shelter, meals and support to family member guests.  Three times each year, we transform Sunday school rooms into cozy bedrooms for 3-4 families.  We provide fellowship and meals each day during our guests’ stay.

Hope Clinic
The Hope Clinic provides primary medical care to 5,000 uninsured or uninsurable or those working without insurance.  Patient costs are based on household income instead of actual medical costs.  Donations are used to cover the cost difference.  We help to provide financial support, conduct fundraisers, and volunteer at the clinic.
