New Hope Homeless Ministries is bringing new light to people's lives.
Joshua Rivers started the organization after experiencing homelessness himself and is now helping others to find shelter.
Joshua "felt a calling to ministry " is beginning the process to becoming an non-profit organization and is trying to raise money to help people in need and his ultmate goal is 'for New Hope to open a homeless shelter that accepts people from all walks of life, even if they have a criminal history.'
Rivers is looking for volunteers to serve on the board of directors and is working with local church to accept large donations on his behalf so the donations would be tax-deductible for the donors.
