Come with us on a journey as we share how God has used ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things in hopes of bringing Him the glory He deserves through Hope Haven. We will share where we’ve come from, where we are now, and where we hope to go. Hope Haven was started by a few people noticing a need, gathering together, and asking the simple question, “What can we do to help?” Today, that question continues to guide our ministry. The needs change, but the call to care for one another and foster God-given potential in all people does not. We’re on a mission to serve a certain group of people. In every corner of the globe, there are people with disabilities who are not being cared for or encouraged to reach their highest potential. Through God’s guidance and provision, we help meet those needs all around the world. Whether it’s wheelchairs distributed in Romania or residential services in Rock Valley, Iowa, the needs are vast at home and abroad. As we share this story, we invite you to consider how you might play a role in Hope Haven’s future. Our story is a testimony that all good things start with a strong cup of coffee, so if the Lord has placed a calling on your heart to help people with disabilities, please know there’s a place for you here.
Hope in Action is a chronological story of how Hope Haven went from a small start-up ministry, into a national and international powerhouse for God’s work in and amongst and through, those who have disabilities. Hope Haven started with small beginnings that are outlined in the book, and shared intimately from first hand people that were there and engaged in the beginning, right from start, sitting at the coffee table where this ministry started in the prairies of Iowa. You will be inspired, encouraged, and provoked to engage in your own way when hope turns into action. We encourage you to check out their website and see the amazing work they do around the world and how you can support them in that work.
