Hope Outreach

Hope Outreach


Hope Outreach strives to instill a Christian world view of work ethics in a structured work environment setting for our residents which will allow them to provide for themselves and their families upon graduation from the program.

Hope Outreach builds upon the inward transformation of our resident men’s program by stressing:

  • Teamwork – working together as team
  • Accountability – providing a measure of work progress
  • Integrity – instilling a Christian sense of purpose in work
  • Motivation – fostering a habit of job longevity

Hope Outreach Ministry manages and staffs:

  • The warehouse operations which processes donations of clothing, furniture, electronics, small appliances, housewares, books, and toys
  • The Wayside fleet of vehicles which provide transportation for our residents, staff, volunteers and facilitates pick ups of large donations in the Fox Valley area
  • The ministry’s physical plant maintenance and housekeeping program
  • The Hope Chest resale store
  • The Sweet Charity resale store
  • Hope On Wheels auto detailing ministry
  • Wayside’s community outreach initiatives
