This is the story of a local family, the Hosteters, who have experienced a tremendous life change through their involvement at Streams of Hope. We are blessed by their testimony and hope that you will be, too!

Chad and I first moved to Kentwood about 4 years ago with our kids Angelyn and Reilly. I was a stay at home Mom at the time because my husband Chad was working third shift and we only had one car.

Because of the hours he worked and the kids’ school schedule there wasn’t much time leftover for me to find a job to work with the schedule we had. Things were tough, and Streams of Hope got us through quite a few rough spells when it was hard to get groceries.

We are glad to have the Hosteters as part of our community at Streams of Hope. To get involved at the Food Center, click here.
