Furnishing Hope

Our Mission:  Furnishing Hope is a ministry of Philippians Place that will provide assistance to those in need in our community. We will provide opportunities for people to volunteer in various activities to earn vouchers to exchange for non-food items (paper, hygiene, kitchen, and/or cleaning products), household items, and/or furniture, or financial assistance to prevent displacement.
Ways to Serve! 

To fulfill God’s Vision for Furnishing Hope, we need sponsors, volunteers, and donations. We ask that you prayerfully consider stepping into one of these roles as we work together to engage and serve our homeless community.
