The funding for H.O.P.E. comes from designated contributions and occasional special offerings, used for special projects such as the NHCC HOPEful Blessing Project.
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. Our goal is to provide for the basic necessities of life: shelter, utilities, medical care, food and clothing. We may also suggest that Emergency Public Assistance is sought first (click here for a list of resources) or that participation in Good Sense Counseling (see below) is needed more than monetary assistance.
1. Applications are available at the Info 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 to FOUR 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 rent/mortgage company, utility company, medical or childcare provider.
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, any future requests must be made through participation in Good Sense Counseling. This requirement is to provide accountability for our donors as well as to help individuals become free from financial bondage.
