About Open Arms…

Open Arms Ministry provides an environment that celebrates and encourages all people of all abilities to know the love of Christ. We come alongside individuals and families impacted by disability, so they can get the support they need to participate and serve. Open Arms will provide accommodations and support for children and adults to enhance participation in Hope activities.

If you would like to be involved or have questions, contact Judy S. at jsiegle@fargohope.org.
