My name is Jonathan Roiz and I would like to share with you a vision. A vision that was birthed in 1994 when I was 16 years old traveling in central america as a missionary. I was impacted by the poverty, the despair and human suffering. I saw children who had been abused and living on the streets, I saw families living in homes made of pieces of metal with no electricity or water, children with holes in their legs so deep you could see the bone because they didn't have access to health care.

I also saw how very few were doing anything to change the situation. Churches working against each other because of ego, non-profits no wanting to collaborate or utilize the funds in a more effective way because of a "hero mentality" and it was revealed to me that what is needed is a Hope Movement, a movement of people with a passion and calling to help others who come from various backgrounds and distinct abilities uniting together to step outside of their comfort zone, ego free and working together to bring lasting transformation. A voluntary, strategic alliance to enhance our ability to achieve a common purpose by sharing risks, responsibilities, resources, and rewards, transforming communities into havens of hope.

Story From Despair To Hope

Her name is Rosita, she is 4 years old, and she lives in a one room house constructed on an abandoned lot next to our Haven of Hope Outreach Center. Her house is made of pieces of metal, has no electricity, no running water and no bathroom. Her Mother is a single Mother of four children, her Father tried selling the children for sex to feed his addiction and now has abandoned the family and they are struggling to survive on their own. Many evenings our staff would find Rosita roaming the streets and her Mother was not even aware she was outside of the house. Rosita and her sister also contracted tuberculous because their father has it and they walked bare footed through his fecus. When The Hope Movement opened our doors to help Rosita and her sister they came to us severally malnourished physically and emotionally.

Unfortunately this story is common in the area where The Hope Movement works and we offer the only outreach program in this third largest city of Guatemala. Through our Haven of Hope Outreach Center in Escuintla, Guatemala we are providing daily meals, education, counseling, medical treatment to hundreds of children and families who are struggling for survival and uniting and training local communities to bring lasting change.

Since entering our Haven of Hope Outreach Center little Rosita is now healthy and developing into a wonderful little girl in a safe and loving environment. This is just one story but there are thousands just like Rosita. Thousands of Children who are crying out for someone to rescue them, care for them, love them and provide them with a hope for a brighter future.

About the Hope Movement

The Hope Movement is an inter-denominational, 501 (c)(3) non-profit movement with a passion to bring social and spiritual change throughout the world. Our vision to create a Revolution of Love throughout the world opening the windows of heaven to allow the rain of God’s presence to fall upon His people, flowing through the streets like a mighty river, pouring hope into the lives of many.

Our mission is to unite social organizations, churches, ministries, and individuals together as one in a movement of hope, shaking them from their comfort zone, inspiring them to reach out to those who are reaching out to us. Defend and care for abused and abandoned children embracing them with arms of love. Break the chains of modern-day slavery, setting the captives free. Provide free health care to everyone in need so that they may live long and prosperous lives. Empower the people through education creating a cycle of change. Provide rehabilitation programs to youth and adults to release them from the trap of addiction and oppression. Stabilize the family structure breaking the cycle of abuse and child neglect. Preach a message of hope to everyone in our path opening their eyes to see their life’s purpose, being the voice and the hands of God, transforming communities into havens of hope.

The Hope Movement is not an organization, or a one man show. It is a movement of destined individuals and organizations united as one, dedicating our lives to the rescue and care of children and adults living in desperate need, reaching out to those who are longing for love. A new day has arrived and the Hope Movement is the formation of a generation of transformation.

The Hope Movement’s Response Today

Through life-transforming programs, initiatives, outreach centers, and mission work in the streets united with others, the Hope Movement confronts human suffering: violence that strips widows and orphans of their property and livelihoods, poverty that drains families of hope, family dysfunction that causes children to make their beds in the streets, hunger that consumes life with inner pain, addiction that pollutes the soul, abuse that rips innocence from a child and robs of them a peaceful future, violence that steals dignity and health from children trafficked into forced prostitution, violence that denies freedom and security to families trapped in slavery. Suffering of the poor is not driven by the overwhelming power of the perpetrators – it is driven by the vulnerability of the victims, and the lack of unity and passionate individuals who will step out of their comfort zone, unite, and reach those who are longing for hope. This suffering can be stopped when the power of God is released to flood the streets with hope, transforming communities into havens of hope, and when we step out of our comfort zone, and unite to become a movement of hope. One person unites with another and becomes a ripple, as more unite they become a movement, forming a flood of hope, flowing through the streets, transforming all that is in their path with the power of unified actions of love.

Core Commitments

In the tradition of abolitionist Jesus Christ and transformational leaders like Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King, Jr., The Hope Movement’s work is founded on the call to justice and unity articulated in the Bible (Isaiah 1:17): Seek justice, protect the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.

The Hope Movement seeks to restore to victims of oppression the things that God intends for them: their lives, their liberty, their dignity, and the fruits of their labor. By defending and protecting individual human rights, The Hope Movement seeks to engender hope and transformation for those it serves and restore a witness of courage in places of oppressive violence and hopelessness. The Hope Movement helps victims of oppression regardless of their religion, ethnicity, or gender.
