Financial donations allow us to fill in the gaps of need as we learn of them.

We take every resource at our disposal and provide it in the areas of greatest need,
always pointing people to the local church and to the HOPE we have in Jesus.


The past few weeks Star of Hope has shifted all attention & effort to partnering with the city and state to coordinate food distribution throughout Paterson for many of the unreached.

As an organization we are collecting resources from:


The first & only food rescue program
in New Jersey


Churches, Businesses,
& Individuals



As the needs change and grow, Star of Hope responds.

BoXES Distributed


Grocery Kits Packed

The ministry of Star of Hope has always been to meet the needs of our neighbors through the local church.

Due to the unique nature of our ministry, Star of Hope is embedded in the community through our large network of religious organizations, churches & city leaders.

It’s through these relationships we are able to collect, prepare, sort, package & then distribute the needed resources as we monitor the need.

Essentially, we get the needed resources
to the places that are serving our neighbors.

Help us bring hope and resources to our neighbors.



The need for prayer is greater than ever!

Please join us at noon every weekday for our daily prayer conference call, or text us your prayer requests. We will be led by Pastors and Leaders from the community as we lift up the needs of our city together in prayer. 

Thank you to “Ecclesia,” a city gospel movement of prayer
for helping to lead this initiative.

Looking Ahead

Considering the current circumstances surrounding the COVID 19 virus, we have shifted all of our attention to the front lines of the churches’ efforts to love and care for the poor, the orphan, and the widow.

We remain committed to leadership development, job and life skill training, STEAM programming for our cities’ youth, on-the-job retail training in our Thrift Store, education through the Antioch Initiative, participation in the Global Leadership Summit, and more. While these efforts take a backseat to our Crisis response, we want to assure you that we will faithfully return to “business as usual” as the Lord allows.

We genuinely believe this is an incredible opportunity to show the world and the lost what the love and HOPE of Christ in action looks like and to see many begin their journey toward a saving relationship in Jesus through His church.
