House of Hope 316 was at Hope Fest 2023 in beautiful downtown Prescott!
A perfect afternoon, we were able to reach out and spread word about House of Hope 316.
Thank you to all that came by!
Please pray for us as we have to continue to turn people away who are becoming homeless because we have no openings (with our 3 homes that house 19 residents). Sadly, the need continues to grow. Please pray for our staff, residents, and volunteers; and pray that everyone entering our doors will feel & experience God’s love through us.
Brian is now 80 years old and an avid baseball fan. He is the last remaining resident of the original five people who moved in when we opened in 2019. Since the first day, Brian has been a key part of our volunteer staff- as our after-hours supervisor (evening & weekends) as well as helping with the serving of meals, cleaning & laundry duties. As you may know, many of the “House” daily chores are done by our residents who volunteer their time to help with the operation of the home- their home. As Bert says, “Brian has become a dear friend and is such a meaningful part of our team.” Brian has lived in the Prescott area since 1977 and worked hard his entire life at a variety of jobs. He lived in his own place for more than 20 years and lost that home when the rent was raised. Brian was forced to live in a local group home until it closed suddenly. Fortunately for us and him, the House of Hope 316 had opened, and Brian has been with us ever since. Brian says, “The House of Hope has been a life saver. I’m not sure what I would have done without it. I am glad to do what I can to help the ministry and the people here.”
