Street Hope Peterborough was started in 2008 out of a burden that Jesus had placed on my heart——
There was a need in the city of Peterborough for a service and outreach aimed at the neediest in the community, in order that they would find hope in Christ and practical help with their everyday needs.
The uniqueness of this ministry is that it seeks to share the spiritual hope of Christ with the people to which we are providing support; this work is not merely a social service, as there are many of those in the city. The heart of this work is to see lives changed by Christ and to watch people be transformed through the relationship that they have with Him. It is a friendship ministry that offers hope in times of hardship, and the relationships that are formed last for a life time.
