The Herrin House of Hope seeks to help the poor and needy in the Herrin area chart a new course for their lives and find hope for the future. It is a cooperative Christian ministry of Herrin's churches, businesses and ordinary people committed to giving hope for those who are struggling in life.  We follow the example of Jesus who came with good news for the poor and  freedom for the oppressed (Luke 4:18).
