OUR PROGRAMS


Harvest of Hope Food Pantry of Marshall County is our constantly maintained supply of non-perishable food items that we use to regularly assist those in need. These food items are almost entirely provided by local individuals, churches, businesses, schools, and civic organizations.

Martha's Closet is our clothing ministry. We receive innumerable clothing donations and then organize them and place them in our Martha's Closet store, in which those in need may shop at no charge for whatever clothing needs they and their family may have.

New Beginnings Domestic Violence Center is a ministry, at the center of which is a local shelter we oversee, that aids victims of domestic violence. Victims and their children may stay at our shelter cost-free for up to six months as they recover and take their first steps toward freedom and new opportunity.

Meet In The Middle is the name we've given to our FREE weekly lunch every Wednesday from 11 am-1 pm. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this meal, which is less about food and more about the opportunity for people from all sectors of our community---business leaders and bricklayers and machinists and nurses and stay-at-home parents and homeless people---to get to know each other while they're eating. The cost of this program is partly covered through our partnership with the Salvation Army.

Jericho Road, which owes its name to a detail in Jesus’ timeless parable of the Good Samaritan, is the program in which we provide rent/utility/homelessness assistance for local residents in need.

Hands of Hope is a grassroots, volunteer-led program focused on providing cost-free home maintenance and repair for elderly or disabled persons who do not possess the financial means and physical ability to perform the needed work themselves.

Church On The Street is our weekly worship event on Saturday evenings. At 4 pm we have an open gym time for kids (we provide adult supervision). At 5 pm we have an interdenominational worship service led by our Executive Director and by a rotating cast volunteers from several different churches. During this service we also offer children's classes taught by dedicated and skilled volunteer teachers. At 6 pm we serve a hot and delicious meal to every person present (worship attendance is not required), the cost of which is covered through our partnership with the Salvation Army.

Bright Ideas is our summer children's program. From 8 am-noon on summer Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, we provide food in addition to educational, spiritual, and character enrichment for K-6th grade children. As in all our programs, there is no cost to the children or their families. An after-school component of this program will be beginning on Thursday, March 7.
