It’s Back to School Time!  We are going to do our best at New Hope Ministries to help families in need obtain the school supplies for the start of a new school year.  Because of the pandemic, we have to greatly modify our programs this year. We still want to provide school supplies for those who receive assistance at New Hope. Whether the children go back to school or work from home, they will be needing school supplies!    

Please drop off back to school supplies at your nearest New Hope Center during regular business hours. Click here for Center hours.
