In the spring of 2014, a new ministry, H.O.P.E. Outreach was born. It began as a home repair and weatherization ministry housed in a Sunday School classroom.

From the very first day, we discovered that the families we were reaching had needs beyond home repairs. One thing led to another, our services expanded, we were gifted a new home and H.O.P.E. Outreach now serves Kinney County residents as a comprehensive resource center.
