What is Hope4Healing?
Based on John 10:10, the goal of the Hope4Healing Resource Assistance Network is:
“CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH THE RESOURCES THEY NEED TO LIVE LIFE AT ITS FULLEST”
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy …
… I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10 ESV
The idea for Hope4Healing was conceived by a group of students gathered in a dorm lounge at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois in the fall of 1977. It lay dormant for the next 36 years until 2012 when, in Spring, Texas, the idea became “eSourceNetwork.” The eSourceNetwork came to Quakerdale in July of 2012 and was transformed in a joint effort with Far Reach Technologies into the web application “Quakerdale Discovery Network”. In August of 2014, Quakerdale used this ministry tool to launch what we know today as the “Hope4Healing Resource Assistance Network.”
The Hope4Healing Resource Assistance Network is a partnership with churches, organizations, and individuals who have a heart to help the members of their local community. Although the network reaches across the whole state of Iowa, it is designed to function with the local churches and organizations in your community; strengthening individuals, families, and communities by working together!
“But grace can be the experience of a second wind, when even though what you want is clarity and resolution, what you get is stamina and poignancy and the strength to hang on.”―Anne Lamott, Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers
