Hope For The Homeless
Manassas Hope For the Homeless demonstrates the Warmth of Christ with tangible demonstrations of love to the Homeless of Manassas during extreme cold. The Manassas Hope for the Homeless is comprised of Christians from over a dozen churches in the greater Manassas area who have come together to provide emergency shelter and food to the homeless when we experience extreme cold weather.
