Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the least and the lost.
Hoskins Park Ministries (HPM) is a Christian ministry whose primary purpose is to share the love of Christ with the poor and homeless by providing transitional housing facilities, clothing, food and other necessary support to those in need while adhering to the call of the Bible for Christians to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19).
Currently Hoskins Park Ministries has 12 houses in northwest Charlotte, all within one block of each other and accommodate 42 previously homeless men. We have a staff of 6 which includes; Tom Wheeler, Exec. Director, Johnny Allen, Program Director, Edwin Freeman, Lead Supervisor, Paige Vestal, Director of Administration, Tony Arzaga, Supervisor, and Cynde Frazier, Administrative Support.
Tom and Johnny officially co-founded Hoskins Park at its own 501c3 non-profit in 2006 although it was unofficially started in 2001 when Johnny first moved into the area and started taking men in off the street. We take most men who come for help and trust the Spirit of Jesus Christ to change people from the inside out. We are a ministry of grace because we believe it is God's kindness that leads people to repentance. (Romans 2:4)
