Mission of Hope

Welcome to Mission of Hope!

It is indeed hard for many to imagine the dire poverty and living conditions that still exist, in many rural areas even today. Lack of jobs and opportunities is an ongoing serious problem in rural Appalachia. At Mission of Hope we extend a helping hand and bring a bright ray of sunshine and Hope to those who might not have much otherwise.

Get Involved / Volunteer

See how you can help us spread the Hope to rural appalachian families in need. We need volunteers throughout the year to help with our many ministries.

Thank you for the compassionate support as we share our love, concern and Hope for these proud and deserving families.

Last year because of your generosity, we were able to help over 17,000 children and their families with food, clothes, toys and hygiene items.


Many of the people we assist are caught in the pockets of poverty and as a result have lost all hope for their future. With your help and with God’s love we can help bring new hope to many.
