OUR STORY

HOPE Center of Edmond was organized in April 1984 to meet a community need for a central agency to provide social services. The Center was developed by the Edmond Ministerial Alliance, an interdenominational council of churches, with volunteers and a grant from the Edmond Women’s Club. The purpose of the HOPE Center is to meet the basic needs of members in the Edmond, Oklahoma community.

Our organization is funded through private donations and grants. Many of the churches in Edmond contribute regularly. Our only other regular source of funding is HOPEfully Yours, our resale shop. Clothing and household items that are not utilized for clients are sold, and the proceeds are used to help fund our prenatal clinic and purchase fresh food items for our food pantry. Our community continues to support HOPE through food drives and volunteer hours.

OUR MISSION

Our name is our mission: Helping Our People in Emergencies.

We strive to meet the basic needs of the people in our community who are having personal emergencies. The combined support of many of our local churches, businesses, and individuals means that we have the resources to provide food, clothing, and financial assistance to our neighbors in need from a single community agency at no cost.

YOUR MONTHLY IMPACT

The volunteer time you serve and goods you donate allow HOPE Center to continue to provide services at no cost to our neighbors in need.

DAILY OPERATIONS

Each week, around 180 volunteers rotate shifts and assist staff to keep HOPE’s operations running smoothly. They are members of churches, Scout groups, university clubs, and social and service clubs, as well as high school students, college students, stay-at-home-parents, and retirees.

39 YEARS OF SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

The uncertainty of life is the major factor necessitating the need for an agency like HOPE Center. Most people live and make do as long as nothing extraordinary happens to them. However, for most of us, it only takes one unexpected expense or situation out of our control to disrupt our lives. The harsh reality of a hungry child or an eviction notice or utility cut-off can cause panic or hopelessness for anyone.

Most of the individuals we serve are people who work hard to provide for themselves and their families, but find themselves in desperate situations. We strive to treat each client of our agency with respect and kindness and help them resolve their emergencies.

The longevity and success of the HOPE Center are a direct result of conservative management, judicious planning, and a serious commitment to accountability. Each contribution and donation is used carefully to provide the greatest benefit for clients. Keeping administrative overhead as low as possible is another way the agency maximizes its resources. This ongoing dedication to fiscal responsibility has enabled HOPE Center to continue to provide quality services to clients for over 39 years.

          I fell on hard times and needed some assistance and this was the ONLY organization in Oklahoma I could get to assist. No games or cat and mouse, they simply just help. Unlike other organizations who just make you explain your whole life story just to tell you they can’t help you. The HOPE Center was completely different and I’m thankful there is at least one place that actually still will try and help you.
