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.
Responding to the human hurts and hopes of persons in Lake County who are homeless by providing emergency shelter, care and guidance in the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Project Hope is a faith-based, ecumenical temporary emergency shelter for men, women and children. Every day, prescreened homeless guests, numbering up to 35 daily, do chores, set and work toward positive goals, and receive help or information from other agencies, which ultimately leads to a total success rate of more than 50% transitioning to better living conditions within 45 days. Project Hope provides more than a meal and shelter, it renews lives and restores hope.

Volunteering at Project Hope truly gives the feeling of being able to be a part of helping others gain hope, strength and a sense that others care about them succeeding in life.It touches not only their physical needs of a shelter and food for their bodies but also nourishment for their spirits. I have been so blessed by the guests and the volunteers I have had the honor to meet and work with!!!! You feel God' presence!
