Operation Rescue CarePoint

Operation Rescue started by working with people on the Guatemalan streets. During this time, Operation Rescue’s founder reached out to the children of these families in order to break the cycle of poverty. Many of the children were living in extreme poverty near the city dump. Out of this, the “Lean on Me” school was born. It has provided free education for thousands of children who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to attend school. The teachers and staff place an emphasis on instilling Biblical values and life skills in order for every child to experience their full potential.

With the partnership of the Point Community Church – Somerset, the children at Operation Rescue CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Point Community Church – Somerset community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Operation Rescue

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

A fundraiser for Operation Rescue CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
