Dear Hope Horizon East Palo Alto Friends and Family,

For 40 years, Hope Horizon East Palo Alto (formerly Bayshore Christian Ministries / BCM) has been opening doors to hope and a future.  We have been opening doors to growth, opportunity and love to the children and youth of East Palo Alto.

For 40 years we have run academic, spiritual, life skills, leadership development, robotics, art, science, dance, cooking, gardening, financial literacy, social emotional learning, time management ... and the list goes on.

Meet Jenn. Jenn first attended programs in elementary school. She affectionately referred to BCM as her second home. Growing up at BCM provided a stable and safe place for her to grow amongst other instabilities in her life. “The spiritual programs I attended constantly challenged my thought process and beliefs and I grew stronger spiritually because of it. I appreciated being taught our faith-based lessons and given the opportunity to make the decision to grow at my own pace.”  Jenn says we have made a huge impact on who she is today. And now, Jenn is making a huge impact on the next generation. Today, Jenn has returned to Hope Horizon EPA as the Director of Operations. Jenn is living, breathing evidence of the impact one life, one moment can make – both in those that loved her and those to whom she is passing on that love. 

Now, multiply exponentially the stories and lives of impact that Hope Horizon EPA has had over the past 40 years.


It’s not easy to sustain the work of Hope Horizon EPA, but we are grateful for each of you that has played an instrumental role in carrying out our mission and vision.

Will you consider a 40-year celebration gift to honor the 40 years of impact and toast the 40 years yet to come? Perhaps it is $40 or $400, $4,000 or $40,000. We invite you to continue to be part of what God is doing here. 

“For I know the plans I have for you; plans to proper and not to harm, plans of hope and a future” --Jeremiah 29:11  


This still rings powerfully true. This vision has sustained Hope Horizon EPA for 40 years. In a world that continues to harm, hinder and halt the future of so many of our students, Hope Horizon EPA brings God’s powerful message of hope.


Will you open doors to: Christ • Community • Love • Hope • Forgiveness • Redemption • Educational Equipping • Leadership Development • Careers • Robotics & STEM Exposure • Loving Adults • God’s Overwhelming All Consuming Love? 


Josette Langevine and Tiffany Hong, Executive Directors

We were thrilled to reveal our new name and brand on March 1, 2022 as Hope Horizon East Palo Alto. We are excited about the clarity of vision that God is giving us as we take our organization into the next season.

An Open Door: We help students open doors to their rising futures, to the hope of Christ and to the hope of something beyond the set of circumstances they may be in right now.

Looking to the Horizon: The horizon with a sunrise is a way to speak to the hope that is a always on the horizon, a new possibility ahead, a future unseen and unknown.

We look forward to the next 40 years of equipping East Palo Alto and Belle Haven youth to grow spiritually, gain life skills and develop as leaders so that they have hope and a future.

For it is for this we labor and strive,
because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all people.
1 Timothy 4:10

ways to get involved

Let Us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23
