In short, Team Hope is an initiative of Peoria Rescue Ministries in concert with what we see as a larger movement of God in our world to see poverty alleviated and humans flourishing.

A COMMUNITY making a difference

TEAM HOPE springs from the realization that to bring real hope for those experiencing poverty, it requires all of us doing our part to help our neighbors in need.

  • TEAM HOPE is

    • The Community - compassionate people who want to see their neighbors succeed and move from poverty to flourishing. It’s businesses who desire to see men and women engage in fulfilling work, building a future and filling vital roles in the economy, companies and society.

    • The Church - the body of Christ, individually and corporately coming together to fulfill the mission of Christ to bring, “good news to the poor.” To live out the kingdom call to live openhandedly and give generously to neighbors in need. To live a life of mercy like the Good Samaritan who saw the need and responded, shared his resources and gave up a portion of his life to help a wounded man.

    • Peoria Rescue Ministries - Like the innkeeper in the parable of the Good Samaritan - PRM provides the focused and relational care required to transform wounded men and women to wholeness. To engage in individualized and innovative care plans that go beyond shelter but provide hope for flourishing in and through Jesus.

  • The Goal is to unite as a team so that together, we alleviate poverty and everyone experiences human flourishing.
