We consider it a great joy to partner with you in this work that is so close to the heart of God — a work that we know could not be done without your generosity.
We also know that we have a great responsibility to be good stewards over the funds that are entrusted to us for the benefit of the children and families we serve. Good stewardship, one of our core values, compels us to strive to achieve the highest industry standards of integrity and accountability.
We work diligently to limit our overhead costs while maximizing quality child and family-focused program activities. As a result, less than 6 percent of funds are used for administration and fundraising.
YOUR IMPACT HAS BEEN GREAT.
When you invest in the work of Jesus Christ you are investing in something not just for a moment, but something that is eternal.
Proverbs 19:17 says, The one who is gracious to the poor lends to the LORD, and the LORD will repay him for his good deed.
When you are gracious to the poor you are giving to the Lord. In other words, what you do for the least of these you do it for Jesus. If you ignore them, you ignore Him. If you give to them, you are giving Him.
When I started The Hope Movement 11 years ago I was a kid with a dream. No money, no connections, only a pain in my heart for those in need and a calling from God to help them. A few friends, family members, and even strangers heard the cry of my heart and took a chance in believing in me and gave, opening the door to start The Hope Movement. Since then because of your financial support we have built a home for a family in El Salvador, a roof of a church in Costa Rica which now has hundreds of members and supports feeding programs in Haiti, found the family of a child being deported from the U.S. to Mexico, raised awareness about human trafficking, fed the hungry in the amazons of Iquitos, Peru, fed children in the Philippines, provided mosquito nets in Africa to prevent malaria, fed and evangelized to Muslim and Hindu communities in Bangladesh, provided tens of thousands of meals in Guatemala, transformed the lives of children with clef lip, organized medical missions providing free health care, installed a water well for an indigenous community, evangelized in nearly every continent, preached the Gospel in public schools in developing countries and saw many come to Christ, started a Bible Institute in Guatemala raising up the next generation of leaders, rescued women and children from abuse, provided education and counseling to hundreds, provided wheelchairs to children and adults, visited homes and prayed with the people and witnessed miracles from God, conducted street outreaches throughout Guatemala, transformed vacant lots in Baltimore City into Haven of Hope Community Gardens in connection with a mentorship and outreach program and shook the comfort zone of the church to form a literal movement of hope.
This is your impact, your eternal legacy of reaching those in need. They come to us physically, emotionally and spiritual broken, God gave us all the call, you gave to us the resources and we responded with actions of compassion, transforming lives forever.
