Trustees and Founders

Bob and Peggy Christensen founded and oversee A Ray of Hope since 1998. They learned about helping others early in life. Bob Grew up on a ranch in Montana, where helping each other was a means to survival. Peggy grew up in a family where helping the poor was a normal event.
On July 4, 1970 Bob and Peggy committed their lives to Jesus Christ. They also accepted the mandate from 1 Peter 4:9,10, which says, "be hospitable to one another without grumbling. Each one who has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of "the Manifold grace of God." This verse from God's word set the path that they were to walk out in gratitude for the grace the Lord gave to them.



A Ray of Hope provides a safe harbor for those in the community with nowhere else to turn. Those who seek help are provided with food, clothing, shelter and most importantly, job training which provides an avenue to develop competency in meeting life’s financial, emotional, family, legal and rehabilitation challenges.


A Ray Of Hope will Offer a “hand up”, rather than a “hand out” in order to build self-respect and dignity.
