Umbrella of Hope Ministry


To understand the struggles of poverty and work with families and individuals to provide help for the present and hope for the future.


To seek out families and individuals in distress and assist them in achieving a healthier more sustainable way of life.


Founded in 2006, Umbrella of Hope began through the inspiration of two individuals within our local church. Armed with a desire to help, a watchful eye and zeal to reach those in need, they set out to fulfill their calling. Later, recognizing the needs in the external community, they developed a strategy with the hope of demonstrating God’s love and compassion in practical and tangible ways. Utilizing their own funds and being able to generate funds from within the church enabled the beginning of Umbrella of Hope.

Umbrella of Hope is a division of the Church of God Sabbath-Keeping Ministries and is funded by donations and charitable giving from our local churches and individuals. Our faith in Jesus Christ, the love and grace we have received from Him motivates us to have compassion for others.

Through the expression of Christian love, Umbrella of Hope is working towards breaking the cycle of poverty in the community of Peel Region, while bringing back dignity to the lives of many.

What We Do

We believe every person is created in the image of God and is loved and valued by Him, therefore Umbrella of Hope facilitates response to the needs of families and individuals struggling in economic, social or spiritual poverty.
