HOPEWELL  LOVE

A community where everyone is valued.

The mission of Hopewell Love is to mobilize congregations and individuals by developing a community ministry that values persons-their needs and their gifts. This ministry will build Christ-like relationships that transform individuals through service to Christ and connectedness to one another.

 HOPEWELL  LOVE  AT A GLANCE

A Bit of Background

Working shoulder to shoulder with a growing volunteer pool since 2006, Hopewell Love, an ecumenical Christian non-profit in the Douglassville and Birdsboro, Pennsylvania areas, functions as a clearinghouse for people in need. In partnership with Hopewell Love are more than 20 local churches and community groups and agencies. Hopewell Love reaches out to those in need and offers local volunteers concrete and meaningful ways to offer their time and talent. The emphasis is service to others and a greater sense of community.  Working together for the common good is the mission.
