In an effort to impact the strained household budget, unemployed households, or the impact of homelessness.

In 1998, a second generation descendant, Lena Teagarden (daughter of Susie Campbell) reopened Holy Temple Pentecost which at the time was a dilapidated structure. Making the necessary improvements to the building, the church began to minister to the 48204 community again. In April 2003, Lena Teagarden founded Haven of Hope Community Outreach, Inc. Haven of Hope's mission is to provide an oasis of opportunity to feed clothe, comfort and encourage, educate and empower those in need. With the assistance of her sisters, her children (third generation) and volunteers, Haven of Hope has a weekly food distribution program which provides a box of nutritious food to low income residents in zip code 48204. Additionally Ms. Teagarden is a dedicated and committed servant of the community. She served as an educator at Mackenzie High School (Wyoming and Chicago) from 1976 until its closing in 2007. Ms. Teagarden retired in 2010 after 38 years of service to Detroit Public Schools.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
