Established in 2011, the Hope Center provides a place to live out our mission (above) by sharing the hope and love of Christ while meeting basic needs and offering long-term solutions that will increase men and women's dignity to be all God designed them to be and empower them towards a more stable future.  

The Hope Center houses the Food Pantry and regular monthly Community Care sessions, as well as special training opportunities for those involved with the Community Care program. 


Community Care

The Community Care program offers practical opportunities to improve life situations and help people navigate resources in a spirit of love, encouragement and hope. Members meet one-on-one with a trained Life Encourager to share current joys and address challenges.  These meetings focus on helping improve life situations and informing members about available services and referrals to community agencies and organizations.  Add a healthy meal or snack, age-appropriate childcare, haircuts/manicures, home and health care products and wonderful prayer to each session and you'll recognize that this is an amazing opportunity for growth, refreshment and reset.
