8 Days of Hope Ministries is a non-profit organization that helps people through hard times. They are usually the first ones to arrive when a natural disaster hits a particular area. Usually, when we have bad hurricanes that make landfall on the Gulf Coast they are the first on the scene to respond to help along with other resources and ministries such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army. 8 Days of Hope did a lot of work when Katrina hit back in August 23, 2005. These people are very sweet, kind, loving people that have a good heart and are all about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the work that they do. If you are ever in a natural disaster or become a part of one I would want these guys on my doorstep.
You may ask the question, well who are they? Well, I am glad you asked. Eight Days of Hope is a Christian, non-profit organization that is both evangelical and non denominational. They exist to demonstrate the love and hope of Jesus Christ by serving those in need. Also, they strongly believe in the Lord and in the Bible and are known to work and help people out whose homes are destroyed and ruined by natural disasters but yet as they work and help out their fellow neighbors they are sharing the love of God to others.
Eight Days of Hope was meant to be a one-time visit to the Gulf Coast with a handful of people after Hurricane Katrina. God has allowed this ministry to blossom into so much more! On several different occasions, thousands of volunteers have ministered to people’s needs after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Irene, Isaac, the floods in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Nashville, Tennessee, Black River South Carolina and the tornadoes in Northeast Mississippi and Northwest Alabama. Eight Days of Hope has one goal: Love and Serve those in need!
Eight Days of Hope is an organization that has successfully restored or rebuilt 1,916 homes following natural disasters since 2005. Volunteers from 45 states and seven countries have worked for over 765,325 hours during the first thirteen rebuilding events alone. In addition, our Rapid Response team has traveled to 17 different communities and has blessed 1,133 families within three days of the disaster! To date, Eight Days of Hope has completed over $30 million dollars of work – for free!
