Hope Ministries

The purpose of Hope Ministries is to proclaim and demonstrate the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ, meeting the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of men, women and children who are homeless or in need of hope.


Our mission is to create a community of unconditional love, support and hope for the homeless, and to help get people off the streets in Polk County.

Wherever unsheltered people are living, in a and around Des Moines, volunteers visit with them weekly; building relationships, providing survival supplies and helping with specific needs.
