Street Hope Victoria

Street Hope Victoria takes the Love of Christ to the homeless and marginalized. Through Spirit-led personal relationships and practical acts, Street Hope Victoria seeks to experience and share God’s healing love with the homeless and marginalized while working to protect, nurture, guide and assist them to fullness of life and faith in Christ.

Street Hope has been working in Victoria for the past 30 years. Since 2010 a group of volunteers have gathered to serve soup, sandwiches, hot chocolate, cookies and juice from a 27’ motor home twice a week in the downtown area. On Tuesday and Thursday nights between 7:30 & 9:30 the Street Hope Victoria motor home parks on the streets of Victoria to feed and care for those on the fringes of society.

Erick Hinton is currently serving in a leadership role with Street Hope Victoria. Having been freed, by the power of the Holy Spirit, of alcohol addiction, Erick relates well to many of the folks he meets on the streets. He sees that people without the Lord are broken and fragile. Those on the street have had the veneer stripped away and it is very easy to see that they need help, but "all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God". Erick tries to move, constantly, in response to the guiding of Holy Spirit and to repose in his Peace.

 

We are Community-Based Evangelists 

Values: We believe that everyone is emotionally, socially, spiritually and morally imperfect, and  that everyone needs God’s love and grace to be content in this life and to be made perfect in the next.

Vision: To be a vibrant and loving Christian fellowship where the most desperate and desolate can “belong, believe and become” while also having essential practical needs met.

Relationships: Personal relationships – marked by love for the homeless and marginalized, each other and God – are the very substance of the ministry. Seeking to experience and share God’s healing love. No program or structure can substitute for friendship or love. The organizational structure is intended to help make room for people to become personally involved in a dynamic, loving fellowship where personal wholeness through a saving faith in Jesus Christ is encouraged.
