The Community of Hope

This is an outreach of our church community to people who are homeless, housing insecure, or are struggling to have their needs met. The Community of Hope has been meeting at the Manhattan Church of Christ since 1993.

Isaiah 58:6-7
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
To loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?

Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter -
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
