About Us

Hana Mission (Hana meaning "one” in Korean) is a Christian non-profit ministry organization dedicated to training socially neglected and under-resourced members of Paterson, NJ to regain spiritual and physical health through Christian and academic education, job training, and various feeding projects. 


Hana Mission encourages teenagers to volunteer at their thrift stores and homeless shelter, inviting new generations of people to care about environmental and housing issues. These volunteers do not need to join the ministry as all help is welcome. They dedicate their free time to help those in need and are hardworking, determined, and passionate about improving their community and the lives of the people within it.

As one family, we strive to shine Jesus’s light on those who have been hurt and abandoned by society.

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.

Ephesians 4:11-12

The Hana Mission Story

Pastor Hank Kim first received God’s calling to serve the homeless, ex-convicts, and people struggling with drug and alcohol when he visited a family of an inmate in 1996. There, he witnessed an African American infant, about the age of his own daughter at the time, crying and screaming in a dirty diaper that hadn’t been changed for hours, if not days.

Questions like ‘why anyone should suffer from poverty’ or ‘who should and will take care of troubled children and families’ continued to arise one after another. After struggling to find the answer to these questions, he finally accepted that it was God who was calling him to serve those to whom the society has turned its back. Not knowing where and how to start the journey ahead, Pastor Hank began by volunteering at different ministries such as the Salvation Army and local churches in Paterson, one of the poorest communities in New Jersey.
