More than a transaction, a partnership with a CarePoint
is transformational for everyone involved!
Through Community-to-Community partnerships, we do not seek to create temporary relief. Instead, we transform communities here and abroad by glorifying God, lifting up orphaned and vulnerable children, and effecting permanent, positive change.
What Does Community-to-Community Relationship Look Like?
Relational and hands-on
Both communities share a common vision for equipping vulnerable children, their families, and entire communities. As members of one community begin to build relationships with the other through letter writing and supporting a HopeChest Friend, funding a project, praying, or visiting a CarePoint, cross-cultural barriers are broken and strangers become friends!
Rooted in Christ
God created us for community–and it works! We are not built to go through life alone. Community means we watch out for each other; we care about, love, and provide for each other. Community is a two-way street.
Instead of simply sending money to a community, the HopeChest model is based on building long-term friendships with those who are caught in the cycle of poverty. The long-term friendships transform everyone involved.
Our two-way transformational approach not only transforms the community you support but your community as well!
Members of your community will experience:
- Unification through shared experiences
- Spiritual growth, leadership opportunities, calls to missions, and opportunities for members of your congregation to use their gifts and talents
- Increased cultural awareness, empathy, and understanding as the global Church expands
Holistic transformation is rooted in three things:
Everything we do is in response to the gospel and an opportunity for discipleship (James 1:27).
The currency of the Kingdom is relationship. Our model transforms both communities through the power of relationship and cross-cultural sharing of passions, gifts, and talents (1 Thess. 2:8).
Community transformation is achieved through strategic, locally-led, and asset-based, sustainable solutions to overcoming poverty.
