Supporting Hope Now financially is a huge help. We need monthly donations to keep us moving ahead as we help young men trapped in gangs. But there are other ways you can help too. Another way is to get the word out about Hope Now.

Recently, one of our supporters wrote a beautiful, informative letter to the editor of the Fresno Bee.

Here’s what he said:

“I was invited to the annual banquet/fundraiser for Hope Now for Youth. This non-profit has a great way of helping gang members get out of the gang life and into society. They teach them to be good, dependable workers, fathers, and men of integrity and faith. Every testimony was awesome.

Pastor Roger Feenstra, the executive director, said it was surprising how many people in Fresno knew nothing about this program. It has helped over 2,000 gang members get out of gangs and plug into society over the past 23 years.

If you are an individual, church, or any business in Fresno, I would encourage you to investigate this program and help any way you can. Need help around the house during spring cleaning? Call Hope Now for Youth.

I also challenge any business in Fresno to get involved by hiring these young men and giving them a second chance to live in our city with their heads held high and walking in the faith as an example to all.”


Thank you, Dana, and thank you to all who help get the word out about this wonderful organization we are privileged to be a part of.

Warm regards,

Roger Feenstra
Executive Director
