Home of Hope

The ongoing political crisis in Zimbabwe has made efforts to reach out to vulnerable children and the destitute a nightmare. Home of Hope is struggling to make the situation more bearable for street children and their families. 

Joan Trevelyan and her team, including her son Craig, continue to faithfully serve and bear witness to the love of Christ under difficult circumstances. Several years ago, The Outreach Foundation made it possible for Joan to purchase a home to live in and a facility for her street ministry. She now ministers to street mothers as well as to children and several older people who live on the street due to illness, poverty, and unemployment. 

In addition to feeding and training mothers at the Home of Hope, Joan hopes to continue providing breakfast every week to over 200 people living in the streets of Harare. She also provides scholarships and uniforms to over 100 school children and medical aid to many in need. Home of Hope remains a lifesaver to many in the city of Harare, where neither land nor employment are available to the street people, the widows and single mothers.

Joan and Craig believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a priority for the people they serve. They believe that as people’s hearts are changed, their situation will improve. New Testament tapes, movies, and other Christian literature are available to adults and children who come to Home of Hope. Many have responded positively to the Gospel, the only way to a lasting hope. We rejoice in the work done by Joan and Craig, and we invite you to be a part of this incredible ministry.
