Host an Event for Streetreach:  
Are you hosting an event in which you'd like to donate part of your ticket sales? Are you a restaurant or retail store looking to contribute a portion of your proceeds? Would you like to collect cash donations to help the homeless, hungry and hurting? Are you a restaurant that would like to donate prepared food for an outreach?   Imagine how you, your church, school, social club or company can start something small, or start something large; either way, we need your help!

  Angel Tree Camping (June-August)
Seeking sponsors for 2019 camps
When Mom or Dad are in prison, the innocent children are left behind to pick up the pieces.  Many don't get the opportunity to attend a summer camp or have a week long family vacation, therefore we sponsor children of prisoner's for a week long Christian Retreat at Camp Mundo Vista, Camp Caraway, Camp Agape, and Camp Bethel during the summer months.  Sponsorship for a child is $50 and the ministry raises the rest.  Incarcerated parent must put in for the child through Prison Fellowship or the Department of Corrections. 
Praise Report! During the summer of 2019 we were able to send 218 local children to summer camp. None of this would have been possible without the Faith-based community reaching out.  We want to extend a "Big Thank You!" to all that sponsored a child or items for the camps.  All glory to God!


Back-to-School Bash (August)

Every August God provides through Building Hope Ministries & partner ministries countless free backpacks bursting with school supplies (and a bible)  to children who can’t afford them. God blesses these children  to begin the new school year prepared, with dignity to return to school  and ready to succeed.  We except backpacks full of supplies the entire year. Items may be dropped off at 1009 Hewett Rd., Supply - year round!

In 2017.....we distributed 315 filled Backpacks & 28 new pairs of tennis shoes

2018 Backpack distribution held:  Sunday, August 19, 3-5pm @ Town Creek Park.  Distributed 200 free backpacks, music, food, and fellowship.

ANGEL  TREE  CHRISTMAS:      Every year we organize a festive holiday celebration for families of inmates, children that are homeless  or at-risk of homelessness, providing a much-needed respite from the daily challenges of poverty in some of our counties most disadvantaged neighborhood


Pulling off a party of this size is no small feat. It takes the hard work and dedication of many volunteers, sponsors, and donors to make the magic happen. You can get involved by:
  • Coordinating a Toy Drive in your office, neighborhood, or place of worship. We need hundreds of new, unwrapped new toys for children ages infant to 17. We'll wrap them and deliver them!
  • Becoming a sponsor. Are you a business who would like to sponsor the holiday party with either an outright monetary donation or by preparing and donating the meal?
  • Gift Cards of any amount are always needed for the poor children to purchase needed shoes and clothing items for school.
  • Dropping off a NEW bicycle for a needy kid at Building Hope Ministries, 1009 Hewett Rd., Supply.
