Mission Statement

At the Convoy of Hope outreach, great care is taken to make each guest feel honored, loved, and respected without regard to age, physical appearance or socio-economic status. Convoy of Hope partners with local organizations and churches across racial and denominational lines. Guests are introduced to these organizations and volunteers who can provide long-term support, resources, and encouragement. This partnership-based community event will activate approximately 1,500 to 2,000 volunteers
