Star of Hope is a historic ministry in downtown Paterson serving the poor, the homeless, seniors, youth, the unemployed, the underemployed and many individuals and families that find themselves in hard places. We do this by working in partnership with churches, schools, and service organizations. Quite simply, Star of Hope serves those that serve people in need by:
Convening groups of people from across Northern New Jersey through unique and varied opportunities to build relationships and mobilize them for action and service.
Providing food and clothing and other material resources to individuals and families through Star of Hope’s Member Network of churches and organizations in Greater Paterson.
Equipping churches, organizations, pastors and community leaders through ongoing training in Christian Community Development, leadership and character development, and other topics and best practices that are essential to leaders ministering in an urban center.
Star of Hope applauds the churches, organizations and businesses, in the city and in the suburbs, that are serving in a variety of ways to alleviate poverty. Star of Hope is particularly excited about the long-term Christian Community Development being done in neighborhoods by those that believe in the work and the person of Jesus Christ. These efforts will produce lasting change long after many come and go.
