Knowing that everyone in the world, no matter where you live, Los Angeles, Grand Rapids, Portland, Port-au-Prince, Santo Domingo, or Ouagadougou, anywhere, we all have the same needs. Shelter. Food. Clothing. Water. Health Care. Education. We are a ministry driven by the belief that working together is the key to meeting those needs. Not changing a culture. Not insisting that our way is the best way. But recognizing needs and helping to make them realities.
Rays of Hope partners with like minded organizations to bring help, healing, and hope to people in need by empowering others to bring positive, self-sustaining change to their communities.
It is our desire to be a blessing to both the people that we help and the organizations that support them in a socially just manner.
Rays of Hope International is a volunteer based organization formed in 2000 to empower and support programs that are actively working in impoverished communities as a non-government organization. We have a mission of inclusiveness of humanitarian aid to all people in need. The primary focus of Rays of Hope is to support projects that encourage self-sustainability, thus helping to break the cycle of poverty within the communities served.
Recognizing that these same communities are often faced with immediate humanitarian emergencies. Rays of Hope also partners with organizations to promote support during times of duress and suffering such as following a natural disaster or extreme poverty due to economic loss.
