Lent 2019: Hope Lives Here

This Lent, we set a big goal to raise $500,000 in 40 days to transform the River Bend neighborhood near downtown Des Moines. And, while we knew that goal was big … we also knew God’s plans were much bigger! Through your generous giving, we were able to raise $798,179.31! Praise God!

All money raised for Hope Lives Here is set to be used by our mission partner, Habitat for Humanity, to build six new homes in the River Bend neighborhood, as well as provide repairs to over 40 existing ones in the same area. Three of these homes were built this fall – thank you to all of the volunteers who made this happen!

Stay tuned for future opportunities coming this spring to build the remaining three homes, as well as repairs on 40+ existing ones.
