CommPres has many different ways you can get involved in Missions and serve the church and community.
In 2011, Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration recognized a growing number of families and children experiencing poverty and living in hotels and motels along Highway 192. They knew the faith community had a role to play, and the idea of Community Hope Center was born.
In 2013, Community Hope Center’s vision came full circle, with our service center’s grand opening to provide holistic care to all those in need in our community. A building that was once an IHOP and then a Mexican restaurant became the new home of hope in our community.
Over the next 10 years, what started as a two-person, mostly volunteer operation providing case management, clothing, and food has grown into a staff of over 20 providing services from emergency relief to homeless outreach, employment assistance, identification services, family advocacy, and a plan for a housing community. We were providing an entire continuum of services and wanted a name that reflected this. Enter Hope Partnership.
Hope Partnership encapsulates the work that Hope Center had been doing all along by highlighting the other services and programs many may not have been aware were provided in our community. Hope Center still exists to serve families experiencing homelessness and poverty in hotels and motels along highway 192, and we are also introducing new entities. Hope Cares will provide emergency relief, homeless outreach, and navigation services, and Hope Works will provide a pathway to employment, healthcare, and housing through day labor and vocational training.
Hope Partnership is growing in exciting ways as we realize our full potential as an agent for poverty alleviation in this community.
