The Herrin House of Hope seeks to help the poor and needy in the Herrin area chart a new course for their lives and find hope for the future. It is a cooperative Christian ministry of Herrin's churches, businesses and ordinary people committed to giving hope for those who are struggling in life.  We follow the example of Jesus who came with good news for the poor and  freedom for the oppressed (Luke 4:18).

  • Knock Hunger Out of the Park to benefit the Herrin House of Hope on July 22nd

    Knock Hunger Out of the Park is an event that will benefit local food pantries and organizations in Southern Illinois by asking the community to donate non-perishable food items at each Wednesday night Southern Illinois Miners home game.
    There are 58,780 people in southern Illinois that are unable to meet nutritional needs, more than half of that number during the summer months are children. 
    Each Wednesday night game will be sponsored by a local business that has donated time and money to help end hunger in our area. Each game will benefit a local food pantry of the game night sponsor's choice and will receive a $500.00 check in addition to any donations received.
    Herrin House of Hope will receive all donations received at the game on July 22, 2015. Thanks to Cook's Portable Warehouses for Helping Us, Help Others!
