About Sacks of Hope

Even before COVID-19, we’ve taken our Sacks of Hope program to the streets. This community outreach program is offered to unsheltered populations. Our “Sacks of Hope” are decorated by school children and adult children with disabilities and then distributed to those in need. Around 640 sacks are made and distributed each month.

With the help of more volunteers, we could do more. Join us today to serve as a volunteer and give back to those in need.

Our Future Goals

Our goal at E.P.O.R. For The Streets” is to have Churches of “ All" denominations

to serve and uplift the unsheltered through year- round Guesthousing/ Shelter programs.

We need Churches who want to change the future for the Lord’s Children.

Build deep relationships with each guests and help connect them to community resources.

Provide a safe and healthy environment.

We need to bring each to Christ's Love and Protection.

We will help you recruit volunteers and train them . The churches can help each guests find resource referrals needed to find permanent housing achieve freedom from many afflictions and addictions and help them find the skills to create sustainable life.

"Margarita  first E.P.O.R. Volunteer she loves to serve and make relationships helped give support to me and our guests.

It was a treat to volunteer with Donna.

It is rare to know someone who understands the unhomed as they really are- their gifts and blessings- instead of only through their myths and stereotypes."

"It was a highlight of my life to stay at the women shelter and to have a place to rest after taking my shower and getting to watch T.V. and favorite news shows.

And making friends. Margarita makes the best mash potatoes."
