Give hope

Your gift on #GivingTuesday helped us exceed our $15,000 goal!

Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to people on the streets and for giving us the opportunity to build more relationships and serve more people. Your generosity and grace will help many people overcome the obstacles they are facing.

The Hope Van will reach more of our neighbors experiencing homelessness — battling deadly winter weather, living under bridges, sleeping in their car — with: 

  • Food
  • Water
  • Blankets
  • First aid
  • The compassion of Jesus Christ

Not everyone makes it to our doors. The Hope Van will mean our Outreach Teams can encounter and build relationships with more neighbors in need, and share the compassion of Jesus Christ. 

*Online gifts received by midnight on December 3 are matched, up to $10,000 total, by Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids to extend Mel Trotter Ministries’ outreach efforts with a Hope Van.


Any money raised above and beyond the designated $15,000 goal will help support annual operations of the ministry.
