The mission of Moments of Hope Outreach is to give Hope to neighbors experiencing homelessness and those living in poverty in the Richmond area, by providing weekly healthy meals, life-sustaining supplies, health screenings, and connecting them with local, state, and federal health, housing and employment resources. We provide a safe organized environment for charitable groups and families to give back to their community in ways that are impactful for everyone involved
Do you have a passion for serving the homeless and less fortunate? Are you looking for a way to reach those in need in RVA? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us reach those that are living in poverty. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, putting together blessing bags or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't reach those in need without the help of supporters like you. #MomentsOfHopeOutreach
Speaking it into existence in the present...The Mo Hope Village is a 45-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness. This transformative residential program exists to love and serve our neighbors who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless.
We've found the land on which we'll build our Mo Hope Village! Our offer to purchase this beautiful 45 acre property has been accepted!
Try to imagine spending the better part of the last fifteen years sleeping outside...in tents, under the deck of an abandoned house, in a boarded up dank, musty garage; black inside with mold, and under a worn-out tarp draped over two discarded sofas in the woods. The latter is where I met Navy veteran Robert almost five years ago, and in that time, I've known him to sleep in the rest of those places as well.
By the Grace of God, Billy survived a vicious attack one night as he slept alone in a covered entryway to a downtown building. His assailant struck him numerous times in the head with a brick. Billy suffered a severe traumatic brain injury which left him with a slowed speech and difficulty walking.
Billy signed a lease on a room in a house in a quiet neighborhood this afternoon. His 2 year homeless nightmare has ended!
Welcome HOME, Billy!
Thank you Lord!
I met him in December of 2014. He’s the 4th “homeless person” I befriended, just a few weeks after meeting Lisa, and over a year before I started Moments of Hope Outreach. He’s one of my “original 12”, and was one of “my guys” back when I only knew a few dozen living outside. By the Grace of God, and after 11 years on the streets and in the woods, his homeless nightmare finally ended Friday with a signed lease for his own private room in a sober house!
Welcome HOME Rayburn!
When we use the term “budgeted”, we mean this is the minimum amount we expect God to provide through donations and grants, to accomplish what we discern Him calling us to accomplish.
For 2020, we’ve budgeted $297,210; roughly $24,767 each month. That’s a lot of $25, $50, $100 & $1000 donations, and every dollar helps! We’ll gladly spend more to accomplish more, if we receive more.
We are thrilled to announce we will be receiving $20,740 in a grant from Altria Companies Employee Community Fund to help us Reduce Food Instability for the 1,538+ households we currently serve in the City of Richmond and adjoining Henrico County. Granted funds will be used to purchase 45,500 canned goods and 9,100 boxes of pasta to be distributed through our Mo Hope Mobile Pantry at our weekly Saturday Servings community events for the remainder of 2019. Thank you ACECF! #ACECF Altria Group
