The Hike for Hope was initiated in 1999 and is an annual family-centered fall event. This year the annual walk-a-thon will begin and end on The Park on Bartlet Street, Andover, Massachusetts. Teams, individuals, church groups, schools and local businesses will join together for a 3-mile walk in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Lazarus House.
Throughout the day participants enjoy music, entertainment and a BBQ lunch at the end of the event. Proceeds from the Hike support all the programs and services provided by Lazarus House Ministries. With your help this year’s Hike will make a dramatic difference in the lives of our guests by offering emergency shelter, food and clothing to people in crisis and then providing transitional housing, advocacy, health services, education and work preparation to permanently break the cycle of poverty.
Proceeds from the hike go to the Capernaum Place, a transitional housing program, which provides the transition from a homeless shelter to a permanent home. Guests of the facility receive life skills and job training, job search assistance, childcare and support from a social worker to take the next step to independent living.
