Calvary Chapel of Coolidge in support of Sheriff

To Whom It May Concern:

The House of Hope is very grateful for the generosity from the Pinal County Sheriff’s office and the personal support of Sheriff Babeu. With the Sherriff’s support, the House of Hope was able to purchase a much-needed A/C unit for our building.

Located in Coolidge, AZ, the House of Hope is an outreach of Calvary Chapel of Coolidge, serving as an emergency food box distribution center for the people of Coolidge, Florence, Eloy, and Casa Grande. The House of Hope brings hope to those who are hungry. People who are in need of food can come to the House of Hope once a month and receive a free food box.

Distribution is twice a month. The distribution is not only about handing out a food box, but the people who come to receive food come into a environment where they are not judged, but cared for. Each person receives one on one attention from our volunteers. The volunteers build relationships with the people; our volunteers encourage the people and offer to pray with each person.

The House of Hope understands the people we serve are going through difficult times. It is our mission to offer each person hope and show that there are people who care. Yes, we give out physical food, but we offer spiritual food; the food that gives everlasting fullness. We share Jesus: The One who changes people’s lives.

The House of Hope has been operating for over five years, and it truly has been amazing to see how God has changed so many lives. It has been a blessing to see the transformation that takes place. A person who was once hurting physically and spiritually receives support. We see them smile. They know that there is hope. They are encouraged and leave ready and willing to face another day, knowing we are there for them and even more, God cares for them. Words cannot express the blessings we see.

We are seeing people change. We are seeing people have hope again. The great thing is, many of the people who come to the House of Hope often return not to get a food box, but to come and help out, serving within their own community. The support that we received from the Sheriff’s office was a huge blessing, for the House of Hope but more importantly for the many people who come to the House of Hope every month.

The A/C unit that was purchased brings more then cold air; it produces a room that is comfortable and welcoming for those who are looking for hope. We are very grateful for the support that Sheriff Babeu has given the House of Hope; not only the House of Hope but the people of Central Pinal County.

Sincerely,

Pastor Eric Kluth
