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 to our guests.
The compassion and the love that we’re seeing from total strangers that don’t even know us — it just blows our mind.
The need …
The poverty line varies with how many people are in a household.
Single-person household: $12,760
Two-person household: $17,240
Three-person household: $21,720
Four-person household: $26,200
According to the Census Bureau, 11.8% of people were living below the poverty line in 2018. That’s 38.1 million people in the United States.
