We Desire to see through the power of Christ that cycles are broken and lives are transformed.
Our mission is to help people break out of the cycle of poverty through a Christ-centered approach of relief, rehabilitation, and development.
We are a transformative Compassionate Ministry.
Every person is the loving creation of God and made within God’s image. As such, we desire to treat everyone with grace, dignity, and respect. Our services are open to all no matter one’s race, religion, sex, life style, orientation, abilities, or mental health.
FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST
Arising out of a heritage of faith, New Hope desires to impact our community through a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled approach of love and mercy. It is our faith in Christ Jesus that can truly heal and rebuild our lives and the lives of those we seek to help.
We understand that a person's perspective, emotions and dreams for the future affect their daily lives. Hope is the belief that the world can be better. Hope is the truth that God loves each of us. We believe that everything we do can bring hope into the lives of each person we serve.
No one program or organization can meet all the needs of our city. It is only when we partner together that we can truly change the cycle of poverty. We seek to form partnerships throughout Anchorage, the Mat-Su Valley, and Alaska with churches, community non-profits, and other organizations to fight poverty.
