How We Began
After years of mission trips to Haiti, Zambia, and the Middle East, Dwayne Brothers and several other friends decided that they wanted to do more than visit. They desired to see more sustainable good. And after visiting neighbors in their local community where children struggled with poverty and lack of resources, they decided to do more than visit. They desired to see more sustainable good. In 2011, The Love-Hope Project was formed to impact the next generation by developing leaders and programs that would share Jesus' love in tangible ways, both locally and globally.
2012 - Our first youth rallies with an African Refugee Church and Reading Camps for youth.
