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.

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/medication assistance for local residents in need. In 2020 this total exceeded $20,000.

Project 9:58 is our homelessness ministry. We offer a warm-up shelter in the winter through our partnership with First Presbyterian Church and also offer assistance in locating and paying for housing. A new transitional housing component of this ministry, called HOPEhouse, will be getting its start with an exciting real estate purchase we made in April 2021.

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.

Table 4.12 is the name of our meal delivery program for seniors and disabled persons. Every Wednesday we deliver a hot meal and critical grocery and hygiene items to several dozen persons who have limited health, transportation, or financial ability.

The Well is our weekly outreach event on Saturday evenings. At 4 pm we have an open gym time for kids (we provide adult supervision). At 5 pm we have a time of fellowship and worship led by our Executive Director and by a rotating cast of volunteers from several different churches. During this time we also offer (1) children's classes taught by dedicated and skilled volunteer teachers and (2) a hot and delicious meal to every person present.

Bright Ideas is our summer and after-school 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 1st grade-6th grade children. The after-school component of this program is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year from 3:30-5:30 pm. As in all our programs, there is no cost to the children or their families.
