Homeless Outreach & Camp Visits – We check-in with our friends living outside and provide supplies such as replacement tents and sleeping bags. We have distributed 1,000+ new sleeping bags and 1,000+ new tents since 2015. We have helped 59 of our unsheltered neighbors end their homeless nightmare through stable housing.
Emergency Shelter Program - We serve as a safety net to Richmond's shelter system and those homeless neighbors who are unable to access traditional shelter after hours or when beds are unavailable, and therefore have nowhere else to turn. We provide Emergency Motel Stays for those suddenly experiencing homelessness., and for our chronically homeless neighbors during dangerous weather. We provide Dignity Motel Stays for those who have not bathed in weeks. We host our Room in the Inn program each year at Christmas…because no one should spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Night outside.
Food Pantry – Our Mo Hope Pantry is located near the Hanover Courthouse and provides Hanover County residents enough groceries to prepare six meals. Our staff assists with applications for benefits such as Medicaid and SNAP.
Weekly Community Outreach Events – Since 2016, we have hosted over 300 weekly outdoor community outreach events and over 61,000 lunches have been served by our partner churches and business. Through our partnership with Feed More, our mobile pantry provides each individual enough groceries to prepare six meals. These events also provide fellowship, prayer, health screenings, clothing, bike repairs, tents and sleeping bags for those experiencing homelessness, and assistance with Medicaid, SNAP, and replacement photos IDs.
