The Mission of Hope concentrates on serving people throughout poverty stricken rural areas of Appalachia in Southeast Kentucky and Northeast Tennessee. To accomplish their goals of providing assistance, the Mission of Hope seeks supplies, resources, monetary donations and grants from individuals, businesses, corporations, service groups and civic organizations. The Mission of Hope then distributes donated items and purchased materials to areas of rural Appalachia where they are then delivered to needy individuals and families through the support of school resource centers and local ministries, already established within the communities which they serve.
The Mission of Hope is a year round ministry that assists many of our Appalachian neighbors with much needed goods and resources; college scholarships; and help with basic educational, health care and home repair needs. There are lots of ways that you can help the Mission of Hope. One of the most important ways you can help is to keep their ministry and those they serve in your prayers. There are also numerous opportunities to volunteer your time both in their Knoxville office and warehouse and in the areas they serve. Of course, monetary donations are always a great way to help as it allows them to use the funds where it is needed most.
