The funding for H.O.P.E. comes from special offerings, such as the NHCC Christmas Blessing Project and other donations. The bulk of these funds are allotted to the H.O.P.E. fund with a small portion set aside for occasional special projects.
Each year North Heartland offers a Christmas Blessing opportunity. To nominate someone for a Christmas Blessing, please fill out the on-line form here

God has entrusted the H.O.P.E. Team with the stewardship of these funds. We therefore need a detailed application to assess each individual’s needs. We may contact you for more information. We may also suggest that Emergency Public Assistance is sought first or that participation in Good Sense Counseling is needed more than monetary assistance.
1. Applications are available at the Welcome Center or for download by clicking here. This application form needs to be filled out completely and legibly, and MUST be signed, in ink, by the individual seeking assistance as well as the spouse or significant other (if applicable). NO form will be processed without the proper signatures.
2. We will send you a postcard to let you know we have received your application. There may be a TWO WEEK turn around on processing all applications. Please understand that funds will be dispensed as the H.O.P.E. Team deems appropriate both in amount and time frame.
3. Copies of bills MUST be submitted. Payment must be to a provider such as a mortgage company, utility company, medical or childcare provider. Payment directly to an individual is done only under extreme and/or extenuating circumstances.
Please note: The decision of the H.O.P.E. Team may be that no money should be dispersed at this time. If an individual has received assistance from the H.O.P.E. fund twice, any future requests must be made through participation in Good Sense Counseling. This requirement is to provide accountability for our donors as well as help individuals become free from financial bondage.
