“New Hope Church is a place where people matter, it is one of our core values and we are thrilled to pass this on to those who are a part of and living in our community.  We have a church full of service-oriented people who want to love on this family and we can’t wait to get started.”

Robin Cooper Engle, Director of Development for bend-redmond habitat for humanity for Humanity, said, “Partnering with the community is what makes bend-redmond habitat for humanity for Humanity successful and it is what we are all about.
