Streams of Hope Family

What areas of your community are you passionate about?

We’ve got a place for you to serve.

Food Center

The Food Center provides supplemental food to hundreds of families each month. Do you have a smiling face and a willingness to keep our Food Center clean, well-stocked, and accessible? We want to meet you!

After School Program

How can you make a difference in the life of students in your neighborhood? Our after school programs are a safe place for middle school students to learn, grow, and just have fun. We’re always looking for mentors to lead games, facilitate activities, and act as a shoulder to lean on for our kids.

Community Garden

Do you have a green thumb? Do you like to work hard and enjoy being outdoors? Our community garden is always in need of extra love and care from a neighbor like you.

Homework Help & Tutoring

We all love to see students succeed – and sometimes the largest factor in their success is the help of a friend! If you have skills in tutoring and education at the middle and high school level, we’d love to meet you.

World Cup Readers Summer Camp

The opportunities to stay active and keep learning continue all summer long for Streams of Hope students! Serve with our summer camp staff to facilitate games, encourage a love of reading, and form lasting relationships with students.

A Seed of Self-Sustainability

About once a week, Betty Van Til can be found demonstrating kitchen essentials to a small group of students in the Streams of Hope kitchen. Under her guidance, three students at a time get to tend their plot in our community garden, harvest the latest produce, and then practice cooking a healthy meal. Along the way they make new friends, grow healthy relationships, and get to try something new!
