Project Hope provides individuals an opportunity to change lives with grants from TMF

When some people fall on hard times, they never get a second chance. Christ UMC in Plano created Project Hope to help out individuals who want to create a better life for themselves and their families.

Many of us have preconceived notions about people who are on welfare, food stamps or are unemployed. It’s easy to think they are lazy or that they just don’t care about their circumstances.

Volunteers at Project Hope at Christ United Methodist Church in Plano know that nothing could be farther from the truth. They’ve seen how individuals in the program have benefited from the support they received, whether it was in completing their education or improving their job or life skills.

Thanks to grants from TMF, Project Hope assists hundreds of people who benefit from the time and effort of volunteers, to change their own lives, as well as the lives of their children. Project Hope truly delivers the type of transformational, systemic change that TMF seeks to encourage and support. It’s the kind or program that impacts not just individuals, but families, communities, and society at large.

“Because TMF provides churches like ours with grants for programs like Project Hope, we are able to help individuals to change their lives and fulfill their destiny.”

- Jana Grimone, Director of Serving Others Ministries and Project Hope.
