Welcome to Press4hope!

We are a chaplaincy that serves the news media. Reporters and photographers often cover traumatic events such as violent crimes, major accidents, and disasters. While first responders, such as police and firefighters, usually have chaplains, the news media generally have not. We are changing that.

Press4hope is a division of Gold Country Chaplaincy, a non-profit organization.
