The mission of Hope Center is to meet the basic needs of members of our community who are facing difficult circumstances.

HOPE Center was organized in 1984 to meet a community need for a central agency to provide social services. The Center was developed by the Edmond Ministerial Alliance, an inter-denominational council of churches, with volunteers and a grant from the Edmond Women's Club.  The purpose of HOPE Center is to meet the basic needs of the community by providing food, clothing, household items and financial assistance for rent and utilities.  HOPE Clinic was opened in 1990 to serve the pregnant women in our area who were having difficulty accessing prenatal care.  The WIC program was added in 1993 to further meet and improve the health and nutrition needs of women and children.  Other services include immunizations and Christmas sponsorships.


 HOPE serves an average of 600 families each month with food, clothing, financial assistance for rent and utilities, prenatal care, immunizations and WIC services.  In December, we sponsor a program matching donor families with client families for Christmas. HOPE Center strives to focus on long-term solutions to client problems by requiring them to complete a specific plan to improve their situation, such as look for work, apply for disability, reduce expenses, or seek financial counseling.
Hope provides basic necessities; food, clothing, financial and referral assistance to struggling families in the community. Food being the most basic necessity, we make every effort to insure that each family we encounter, particularly those with small children, has access to quality nutrition.  We need non perishable food items and funding to purchase perishable items such as milk, cheese, meat and fresh fruit and vegetables.  Our food budget has increased $23,000; up 28% from 2011 to 2012.  

We serve almost 4,000 people with clothing each year.  Children's clothing, shoes, underwear and winter coats are always needed.  

Monetary donations for financial assistance for rent and utilities help serve over 1,600 families annually representing approximately 4,600 individuals.  .

Christmas sponsors are needed each December.  Consider making it a family project to provide a struggling family with groceries for a holiday meal and Christmas gifts for the children. 
Volunteers are always needed in our food pantry, clothing closet, reception area and resale shop.  Apply on-line at www.hopecenterofedmond.com.
