Street Hope Alive and our team of volunteers are serving on the front line to provide emergency support through food supplies, hygiene kits, clothing and more.
It’s through our unique network of relationships that we're able to collect, package & then distribute the needed resources and supplies to the under resourced families living in Paterson's 4th Ward.
Since the summer of 2017, we've taken 75 campers to upstate New York to Inspire Sports Camps. Camp is packed with sports training in basketball, soccer, dance, and includes hiking, fishing, and adventure activities.
The mission is to provide our campers with the most exciting and fun-filled week possible, including meaningful opportunities to be transformed into the person God
has created them to be.
Street Hope Alive mentors connect with the our youth on a weekly basis throughout the school year and teach them important life skills.
This ongoing time commitment is at the heart of the Street Hope Alive mentorship program.
For the past 9 years, with support from our community partners, we've organized an annual Christmas event in Paterson.
Every child that attends receives a wrapped gift.
Event volunteers help to make this celebration a very special and memorable occasion.
