We’re open during this winter storm to provide a safe and warm place to stay. Coffee is on and we have plenty of snacks. Many thanks to Anderson County for the opportunity to operate in this space all the time, especially this weekend.

This is a coffee pot. But if you’ve been to HOPE Missions of the Upstate, you know that it isn’t just a coffee pot. It’s warmth after a long night on the streets or in substandard housing. It’s a symbol of hospitality, a place to gather. I’ve had several “God moments” in the time I’ve been involved with the mission, but this morning I had the most touching conversation with […]

One of many community projects from Anderson University’s Communications department includes a video documentary named, “Homelessness in Anderson.” Over the course of several weeks, students from COM 451 collected footage, interviewed people, walked the streets and listened intently to those who helped tell the story of homelessness in our city. Thanks to the crew who put this together: Jeremy Thompson (editor and camera operator), Simon Loftus (Director), Asa Waters (Producer), […]

We’re serving at Anderson’s Lights of Hope this year!! There are two ways you can be a part: 1) visit the outdoor extravaganza and enjoy all the scenery and/or 2) volunteer to help us at the gate. For HOPE Missions, this is a fundraiser as we get a portion of the proceeds relative to the amount of support we provide. For our community, it’s a chance to get out and […]

Come by HOPE Missions this Saturday to enjoy homemade chicken-n-rice casserole with salad and garlic bread from 2pm to 4pm. We will setup dinner with fixins under the canopy and celebrate a reprieve from the rain (prayerfully). This is just one way we love the opportunity to serve those in our community. We are all about building relationships, creating a safe space for many to enjoy true fellowship. Here’s a […]

HOPE Missions is blessed to have volunteers that support our desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to over 50 people every day that we’re open. One of our super volunteers is Jenni Marchbanks. Jenni’s work schedule only allows her to help out a few times a month before she goes to work, but that hasn’t stopped her from volunteering! We’re blessed to enjoy the biscuits she provides […]

We’re excited to announce that Monday, Jun 28, 2021, is officially “moving day” for Honey’s Place! For the last year, Honey’s Place has been operating out of the Street Mission Outreach Ministries building directly across from Clean Start. Pastor Scott Hanvey graciously allowed us to use their facilities for an entire year. Scott gave us access to all of the space, provided copies of keys, allowed us to rearrange the […]

Love comes in many forms. One way to love on our guests is to help them find peace in the midst of turmoil. Art/crafts time lets us share a quiet, fun, and relaxing activity with our friends. Look for our “creations” one day soon at the Farmer’s Market. One of our guests said, “I feel like a child again. This is fun!” as she worked on her piece. He has […]
