Family Hope Centers seek to keep families together by providing them with critical services, aid and coaching to keep them strong and decrease the likelihood of abuse, neglect and removal of children.

Our Hope Centers are child-centered, family-focused places where families go to find hope, support and empowerment in their community to reach their fullest God-given potential. The key to the Family Hope Center's success is found in combining effective programs and passionate people to help families that are experiencing poverty, family issues and a lack of services. 

Our programs seek to engage through family assistance and community events; equip families through education, financial empowerment, child and youth development and spiritual development; elevate families through family coaching, counseling and spiritual enrichment. Family Hope Centers in our international locations also have schools, medical clinics and water wells to meet very basic needs of families who live nearby. 

Families learn care and respect for self and others. They discover talents and opportunities. As a result, families break poverty cycles through education and jobs. They become servant leaders.

What we do:

  • We welcome everyone with love and respect.
  • We share the gospel through our Christ-like behavior.
  • We begin with family strengthening.
  • We empower for independence.
  • We deliver our programs with the highest quality of service.
  • We always work with the assistance of resident and non-resident volunteers.
