  • Hope Alive Receives Community Grant

    Hope Alive recently received a community grant from Walmart #8 located in Morrilton, Arkansas.

    The Walmart Community Grant Program is highly competitive and receives more than 150,000 applications each year.  So, we are extremely pleased and very blessed to be awarded $2,000 from the program.

    Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are committed to providing opportunities to improve the communities they serve, and Hope Alive Ministries strives to do the same.

    Hope Alive is a cooperative effort of various churches, businesses, leaders and concerned citizens that seek to bring the light of the Gospel into the dark world of addiction. We are a 6 month to 1-year residential program for men, where they will be introduced to the love, forgiveness, and healing found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Our goal is not only to set men free from their addictions, but to equip them to become godly men, faithful husbands, loving fathers, committed church members, and responsible working citizens of the community.

    Thank you, Walmart for supporting us and helping us to fulfill our goals and Christ's plan!

  • Restoration!

    Paul Alan Sewell voluntarily entered the Hope Alive Transformational Ministry Program on January 11, 2021. He participated whole heartedly in the program and volunteered at Haynes Home Center as part of the Hope Alive Community Work Program. He completed his initial 6-month commitment on July 11th, 2021, and entered into the Phase Two program on August 4th. This allowed him to obtain gainful employment with Haynes while still residing on the Hope Alive campus and continuing his recovery goals.

    Since entering the program Mr. Sewell has shown tremendous growth as a godly man; reunited with his wife and child; and continues to remain a faithful husband; loving father; committed church member; and a responsible working citizen of the community. All of these characteristics fulfills the goal and mission of Hope Alive Transformational Ministries hopefully for all residents.

    In October of 2021, an opening became available within the ministry for a full-time resident supervisor position and Mr. Sewell applied and was accepted. He began his duties on October 11th and continues to serve the ministry as an important part of the staff at Hope Alive. He is scheduled to graduate and complete his one-year recovery goal as a resident on January 15th, 2022.

    We'd like to take this opportunity to not only congratulate him on his tremendous accomplishment but also thank all of YOU...individuals; churches; businesses and organizations; that have continued to encourage; support; participate and enable Hope Alive to exist and serve God and people in our communities as lives are being changed; families restored; and restoration takes place!
