Returning to Brookside Country Club! This is our major fundraiser for the income necessary to provide meals, shelter, and HOPE to those we are called to serve. More details to come!
Refuge of Hope will celebrate giving by helping residents and guests of Refuge of Hope get to medical appointments, job searches, housing searches and visits to community service agencies and other transformative events with SARTA bus passes purchased with #GivingTuesday donations. In past years, we’ve been awarded a BOGO grant from SARTA matching every bus pass we purchase up to $1,000. If we reach $1,000 on Giving Tuesday and are again awarded the match from SARTA, that’s 667 bus passes to help our guests get where they need to be in 2022! Your #GivingTuesday donations to Refuge of Hope will directly impact the ability to purchase transportation that will lead to transformation in the lives of homeless men in Stark County.
Partners of Hope
Will you bring hope to those in need?
Neighbors who are hungry and homeless come to Refuge of Hope Ministries for help to make it through a day…a night…and find a spark of light in the midst of darkness. Your monthly Partners of Hope gift to Refuge of Hope Ministries provides a steady source of funding year-round. Your generosity allows us to glorify and serve God by providing meals for hungry men, women, and children, emergency shelter and transition to independence for homeless men and spiritual hope through Jesus Christ.
