Hope starts here.

Our community service opportunities enable you to partner with us in serving at our community events where we provide free groceries, health and dental screenings, haircuts, family portraits, hot meals, career service training and much more to the working poor.

Why Communities?

Communities are the heart of counties, states and nations. When families thrive; communities thrive.  Convoy of Hope is committed to working with local volunteers, businesses, agencies, churches and organizations who believe in building strong communities.

In the United States, there are many communities where working-poor families struggle to put food on their tables. It’s in such situations that a free bag of groceries, the chance to visit with an employer about a job opportunity, a free life-saving health screening, or even a family portrait can serve as life-changing experiences that transform families and strengthen communities.

Our Approach

  • Community Partnerships

    Convoy of Hope’s community enrichment team works in advance with community leaders and stakeholders forming partnerships that build the foundation for our outreach events. Partnership with local governments, organizations, churches and business are crucial to the success of an outreach event.

  • Volunteers

    Volunteers are an important part of all community outreach events. Convoy of Hope engages with community members in building a volunteer base, establishing a customized plan for the community, and carrying out the event. At many community outreaches, thousands of volunteers participate to bring guests of honor a poverty-free day.

  • Guests of Honor

    Guest of Honor at community outreaches events come by the thousands to experience a poverty-free day filled with free food, services and hope. The heart and soul of every one of our outreach events is compassion. Many of our guests of honor are working families living in, or on the fringes, of poverty. The outreach event gives them a hand up during difficult times.
