The Hope Community Center, Inc., is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the community of DeSoto County, Mississippi, by providing safe activities and events for the area’s youth. Combining a much needed after-school program with a variety of activities for citizens of all ages, the Hope Center will infuse the culture of DeSoto County with optimism and a more positive community.
Students of all ages will have many age-specific options so that they can identify areas in which they may excel and find their passions. Some of the possibilities include fine arts, sports, gardening, and computer skills. With the help of trained leaders, passionate volunteers, and local law enforcement, children will be able to have fun and learn in a structured, secure location. Security will be enhanced through the use of a badge system that will require parental approval and communication. The layout of the classrooms and gymnasium further augment enjoyable and practical learning environments.
The Hope Center is sponsored by area businesses, churches, and individuals. Once the first building is constructed, additional sources of revenue will include space rentals and the on-site coffee shop. This upscale shop will model the highly successful Coffee Waves coffee shop in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Hope Center will be a beautiful, positive, upbeat addition to DeSoto County. Its place in the community will enhance opportunities for the county's youth and provide skills and leadership training for the next generation. Tax ID: 35-2519986
