Welcome to the House of Hope!

The House of Hope Food and Clothing Ministry is a cooperative ministry of First Baptist Church of Merritt Island, Georgianna Methodist Church, Calvary Chapel Merritt Island, and many individuals in the community.  It is completely staffed by volunteers.

In 2011, over 100,000 individuals were served over 2.7 million pounds of food.  Free clothing was provided to more than 9,400 clients, and over 1,200 bag lunches were distributed.

All food, clothing, bicycles and other services provided by the House of Hope are provided free of charge.
