New Hope Fund

New Hope Housing was an active ministry in our community for over 20 years. They helped families and individuals become homeowners while showing them Christ's Love. In the Summer of 2013, their board sought a new direction for their ministry. So, the summer of 2013 brought the beginning of a new season for New Hope Housing and EOYoungLife. We are now using the interest income to build up our community in many of the same ways that New Hope Housing has in past years.

With the gift of this home, New Hope Housing has joined a generational change and has allowed​ for the ongoing health of Young Life as well as the possible growth of new Young Life ministries.
