Engaging followers of Christ for his work in the world. One ministry in our organization is the Home of Hope in Beirut is a long-term shelter (in a former elder care home) which currently serves 24 children, between the ages of 7 and 18, who have been exposed to abuse by their primary caregivers or community and are at risk. The children are brought to Home of Hope upon a judicial order and with a protection file.
