I recently got connected with Hope Ministries. I had been looking for volunteer opportunities in my area. When I thought about where I would want to volunteer I felt very called to a position that would serve those less fortunate than myself. During that same time I was reading a book about homelessness in the DC area. Even though the book was fictional, I know the author does his research prior to writing and felt that several of the things he discussed could be common every day occurrences. As I started looking for opportunities to help the homeless in Des Moines I came across Hope Ministries. (Click on the logo above to check out their web page).
