Hope Ministry of Pointe Coupee, Inc. does a lot for the residents of Pointe Coupee Parish. However, many only know about the food pantry, rent and utility assistance, Uniforms for Kids and medical services that we provide. Founded in 1997, Hope Ministry has expanded its services tremendously.
In addition to the services previously mentioned, Hope provides limited funding for temporary shelter, fire victim relief, and flood relief cleaning supplies. Hope also provides emergency food, baby supplies and gas for doctor’s visits out of town. Nevertheless, Hope’s services do not just stop there. Summer dresses, suits for parolees going on interviews and assistance with finding other resources are all services offered at Hope Ministry of Pointe Coupee, Inc. Hope also has a partnership with Better than Blessed for emergency clothes.
Hope Ministry truly has a heart for the Pointe Coupee Parish community. While many of our services are relatively unknown, we are hoping to change that by spreading the word to meet the needs of this wonderful community.
