House of Hope
Currently all the projects and ministries are based out of Hope Church. However, with the other activities occurring within the church building, it limits the space open for projects, such as the After-School program. Hope church has acquired the building next door. It will be renovated as an extension of the church building, including use as a day center for Hope for the Community.
The purpose of House of Hope is to provide a safe place for children, women, and families to attend programs, develop skills, and further education. Many adults in the community would feel more comfortable coming to a separate location instead of a church. The space would also be used to develop new programs and expand on current projects.
