Our Story

On October 7, 2013, Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro was called by God to start a ministry to encourage and empower people globally by helping them to understand their identity in Jesus Christ. 


There are moments in our life so painful,  if it weren't for God, we would not make it. It is during those times God is refining us like silver and purifying us like gold. 

The thread of Hope, Inc. (TOH) is all about Zechariah 13:9, which states, " 'I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘These are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.'"  We have gone through the unthinkable, and God brought us through; it is because we are His people. You are His child, and He wants to do the same for you. 


We are the threads of hope God is weaving into this world to encourage and remind our neighbors that He is God, and He is Elyashib: "God restores," and He will restore all the enemy has stolen. 


I pray the God of all peace would engrave Zechariah 13:9 in your heart and mind.  May you grasp His great love for you and fully understand, if you yield to Him, He is faithful to save you from all your troubles, hurt, and pain. Be encouraged because the Lord says to you, "You are my child." Begin to praise and thank Him. Respond to Him, "You are my God!"

Founder and President

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

It is with great honor and privilege to share with you about our nonprofit organization. Our desire is to truly make a difference in the world we live in today, by providing free of charge programs and services that meet the needs of people who struggle with cultural and literacy competency, medical disadvantages, and by helping build facilities around the world.


We would like to build relationships with organizations, institutions, and nonprofits, who are already making a difference in the lives of underserved groups in third world countries.  We believe that through collaboration and the desire to see all people succeed is what most exemplifies the heart of God.  We were created to make a difference and leave this world with a Godly legacy. The Thread of Hope, Incorporated  (TOH) is committed and devoted to being the avenue that will help others grow spiritually, emotionally, and knowledge.


Thread of Hope is ready to partner with those who make a difference and to be a voice for those who have no voice, bringing hope to hopeless situations. We are tirelessly working on every continent with prominent partners who are doing amazing work in the fields of education, medicine, and construction.


The dreams, vision, and mission of TOH is to see those whose lives were destroyed due to the trials of life be rebuilt and stand stronger than ever before. It does not stop there! The ability to give others an opportunity for them to reach their God-given talents and gifts will inspire them to be a catalyst for change in the lives of others too. We want to invite you to partner with us as we continue to invest in the lives of others. In this packet, you will find ways in which you can help.

Together, we can make a difference and bring hope into the lives of those who have been hurt and cannot help themselves. Our hands have the power to change the outcomes of people for the better. Together, we can achieve the impossible! 


For every love gift above $50 or more, you will receive a copy of "Surrender: The Ultimate Submission." We could not do this great work if it wasn't for your prayers, encouragement, and support. We are making a difference in the world because of people like you, who have a passion for those who cannot help themselves.

In-Service For Him,
Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro
