Founder of Backpacks Of Hope

We are a faith base foundation we have been very blessed by having the support of so many giving hearts so that we can make a difference in the lives of people in need.  Please continue to pray for our team and the people we serve. We could not do this without your support.

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard.  We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and feed.

Our Mission

Support and Prayers

hoPEfor a better  life

"2 Corinthians 9:7"

You must decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a cheerful giver."

It is year 11! Join us for another year of Giving!

​Trust in the Lord with

all your heart.
Paying it forward is about unconditional love for others.

It can be as simple as a shared smile, listening, or giving a hand up.

"Philippians 4:13 "

I can do ALL things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 


Our night of giving will be December 17th, 2021 at the Rescue Mission in Fort Wayne, IN. In addition, during the month of December, we will be handing out backpacks to the transitional housing in Lafayette, VA Northern Indiana, and the Huntington Soup Kitchen.
