Project Hope

“May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  —Romans 15:13

What is Project Hope?


Just ask Karen H. who is currently in school using a laptop that is on loan from Project Hope.

She says “I truly appreciate Project Hope and all the good things you have done for me and my family.  Every time I come in for a meeting, I am greeted so nicely and made to feel welcome. Project Hope really cares.  Your help in arranging for new glasses, reviewing my tax return,  and budget coaching has changed my life.  Thank you so much!”


Mission of Project Hope

The mission of Project Hope has three components:

  • First, to eliminate hopelessness in the North Texas Area by providing a program of coaching, training, education, opportunity and hope to all people who want to move from an impoverished lifestyle to a sustainable, quality lifestyle. The program focuses on seven areas: Family, Faith, Education, Career, Budget, Health, and Personal Issues.
  • Second, to provide a program that gives volunteers an opportunity to share their gifts and talents with those in need.
  • And third, to spread this program to other churches by offering support and mentoring to new Project Hope ministries.

In all instances, the program is transformational.

Foundation of Project Hope

The foundation of the program is the Project Hope Scholarship. Rather than just provide scholarship funds, Project Hope also provides personal coaching and life skills training to ensure success.
