Community Outreach Ministry Extension (C.O.M.E.)

Mat. 11:28, “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest …”

Ray of Hope was birth in 1991, however, the Outreach Division got its start in 1999 by providing faith-based charitable social assistance to poor and low income families. In 2008, at the prompting of the Holy Spirit, the organization was transitioned into a Church Ministry with a community outreach division (C.O.M.E.). Ray of Hope has consistently provided charitable human services to the Broward County Community now for the past 11 years to agencies such as The Salvation Army, Women in Distress, Broward County Parks & Recreational Division, Broward, Fort Lauderdale & Pompano Housing Authorities, St. Lawrence Chapel, The Boys & Girls Club, shelters, churches and numerous individuals, youth and families. Through God’s grace, in 2009 the ministry added a grocery box distribution to its Community Outreach Ministry Extension (C.O.M.E.) portfolio and has been faithfully providing grocery boxes to the community every year. Your prayers and financial contributions are welcomed and makes a really big difference!
