Several years ago, when POH was introduced to the community, I was chair of the STC Human Rights Commission and have fully supported the mission of POH since that time. I have lived in their facility for a time while I was seeking and searching deeply for my place in life and ministry. Having served meals and companioned the guests, we also have provided funding and sponsored a room in the new housing section and continue to donate good and services while inviting others to consider how POH builds community. It is a gift to understand how I might change lives and the world through compassionate companionship and tending to other's needs. Thank you! Peace, James A. Neppl

The staff in the kitchen where very helpful when we got to the Place of Hope to make the meal. They showed how to use the grill. We baked hash browns for it. Helped with setting up the station for serving .They put deserts and salad to add to the meal being prepared. I helped clean up and the staff also said they would do the rest of the cleanup.
