Community Mission of Hope hosted a ribbon-cutting celebrating 10 years of service to the community Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Established in 2009 and located at 41760 Rider Way in Temecula, the organization’s goal is to provide hope through relationships and meeting the tangible need to hundreds of families and individuals to help them on the road to self sufficiency and a better quality of life, according to the website,

Providing food boxes, hygiene products and fresh produce to those in need throughout the Temecula Valley and surrounding communities, Community Mission of Hope has supplied more than 2 million meals to date. The organization also provides case management and mentorship to low income, those who are recently homeless and even the chronic homeless in the area.

“We seek to provide responsible compassion to those in need,” according to a statement from Community Mission of Hope. “In addition to providing basic services such as food and hygiene, CMOH will work with each individual and family to help determine the root of their current situation and then will walk with them on a path to self sufficiency.”

Community Mission of Hope also trains volunteers to become case managers and helps to connect them to those looking for assistance.
