What We Do

The needs in neighborhoods are real.
So are the solutions. 

Guided by the Guest of Honor principle, Convoy of Hope Community Events deliver groceries, health services, haircuts, family portraits, career services, shoes, and much more — all at no charge.

At the event, I was happy for my parents, because I knew it would take a lot off their shoulders.
