    Panama City, FL – Local church receives hefty donation

    Panama City, FL –

    PANAMA CITY, Florida (WMBB) – The House of Hope outreach ministry in Panama City received a check for $ 10,000 from a local foundation.

    This money will be vital for the church as it begins to expand its community outreach.

    The House of Hope is a newer church, which opened just three years ago and experienced Hurricane Michael and the pandemic.

    Dr Tammy Anderson is the senior pastor and founder of the House of Hope outreach ministry and she said this has not weakened the spirit of the ministry.

    “Whatever is needed for the community, which will strengthen the community, which will help rebuild the community,” said Anderson. “We promise God that we will do all we can as a church to make these resources available.”

    Resources like a clothing ministry, where the church distributes free clothing to those in need each week.

    A youth crime prevention program as well as other after-school programs starting in January.

    They will also add recovery programs, including AA and NA programs as well as Celebrate Recovery.

    That’s when coach Jim Lawson stepped in to help and was able to rally the foundation of former Florida speaker Allan Bense.

    “He was able to write a check for the House of Hope for an incredible amount, not a thousand, not two thousand, not three, not four, $ 10,000,” Lawson said. “And with your help, this vision will continue. It’s a brilliant facility. I walked in here today, opened these front doors, couldn’t believe what I saw in this hall and in this room.

    The donation will also help the church start a program for those released from custody.

    “The money given to us is going to help us in our re-entry program for a fresh start, so we are trying to help those who have committed crimes to regain their rights, to help them register to vote”, Anderson said.

    The program will also help these people find jobs suitable for criminals.

    Anderson said their reinstatement program for a fresh start is expected to begin within the next two weeks.
