Discover Hope 517 Ministry- Newton

Our primary campus is in Newton, IA, and is the hub of all our support programs. It also houses the Restoration House for Men, and we are thrilled to announce the upcoming DH517 Resource Center!

How We Got Started

Discover Hope 517 was started in June 2014 by Robbie Robinson—a convicted felon—and Aaron Groves, a local law enforcement officer.

Through a church course, they would learn about each other and what God has done in their lives. God gave them a vision for a ministry that would impact their community.

God’s vision led to the formation of Discover Hope and a partnership dedicated to helping a community that has struggled to find its own recovery for many years. Their goal is to continue building strong, Christ-centered foundations under people so they can go out into the community and change the lives of others in a positive way.
