In 2018 Mission For Hope was founded to provide care for people who are experiencing homelessness. Part of our mission is to make people aware of the severe homeless crisis which exists across North America.
In 2019 I completed a 197 day mission trip in my Jeep Wrangler to 46 of the most homeless cities in North America. I partnered with local Jeep and off road clubs in each city to distribute blankets, hygiene kits, hats, gloves, socks, food, and water. We did outreach to the homeless in Indianapolis, Chicago, Denver, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Salinas, Riverside, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Roswell, Dallas, New Orleans, Jackson, Mobile, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Key West, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Saint Lucie, Atlanta, Greenville, Nashville, Durham, Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, The Bronx, Springfield MA, Burlington VT, Portland MA, Boston, Revere, Lynn, Salem MA, Calgary, Prince George and Vancouver, BC.
In 2020 we provided care to hundreds of people experiencing homelessness despite the challenges of COVID-19. In 2021 we hope to provide even more care to the poor which is desperately needed because of the pandemic.
Thank you partnering with us on our mission.
