Our Vision for 2018

In 2016 we opened the Hope Mission Thrift Store. Things went along so well, that we expanded into a 2nd store. The 2 stores are actually side-by-side in a strip center just up the street from Hope Mission. Our thinking was that we could raise more money so that we could open a Women’s Shelter in Carteret County. It seems almost unbelievable that a County as big and as rich with resources, has no place for a woman to stay if she finds herself homeless. We aim to fill that void this year by the Grace of God and with your help.

If you would like to be part of this wonderful project in some way, large or small, please contact us. You can call us or fill out the contact form.

UPDATE:  On February 1, 2018, Hope Mission opened the first Women’s Homeless Shelter in Carteret County! Congratulations and Thank you!
