Investing in a Healthy Community

The Bridge Legacy Society

The Streams of Hope Bridge Legacy Society was created to honor those supporters who have chosen to leave a legacy for Streams of Hope’s future by making a planned gift. By notifying us of your planned gift, we will welcome you into the Bridge Legacy Society!

Unless a gift is committed anonymously, we will recognize Bridge Legacy Society members in our donor communications. Not only are we grateful for those who have already notified us of their gift, but we also want to inspire others to join!

Some donors prefer to give anonymously. If that is your wish, please let us know so that we may honor your request for confidentiality. Specific terms and values of all gifts will remain confidential.

“We wanted to support Streams of Hope financially as we see what a benefit it is to the community. The programs happening here are truly a testimony of God’s love for this area, and can be for generations to come!” 

Bob & Ann Storteboom

A Thriving Community Center in the Townline Neighborhood

The name “Streams of Hope” comes from the Bible. God reclaims His lost and dying world by giving us the water of life — the only thing that can satisfy and bring renewal. We believe that by combining resources and creating programs that specifically target the needs of our community, we can be a conduit through which the stream of God’s blessing flows.

Mission & Vision

We exist to demonstrate God’s love and foster sustainable change through services that build relationships, meet family needs, and promote a healthier community.
