Your financial gift allows you and your family to become a part of our outreach ministry
We at Hood Church are passionate about our street outreach ministry we understand that transportation is a challenge for the homeless community. Knowing this, we take our outreach efforts to where they are needed most, under bridges, homeless encampments, shelters, etc. Our outreach ministry does more than provide food, clothing and hygiene products. We check the general health and well being of our friends in our community who are experiencing homelessness. With Hood Church the love of Jesus Christ goes a long way.
