About Us

The Sharing H.O.P.E. Center has open doors for individuals seeking solutions and connections to overcome significant challenges. We support victims of trauma, addiction, crime and the COVID-19 crisis.

Everyone gets “stuck” at various times in life. Physical pain and medical issues can keep us from feeling healthy and motivated. Financial pressure is a major cause of divorce and can lead to serious mental health issues. Addiction to anything from sugar and television to heroin and prescription painkillers can impact our ability to function.

There is H.O.P.E. for those who know where to seek solutions. We are here to be the link to bridge the gap between your needs and the resources that will open the doors for your freedom! The Sharing H.O.P.E. Center was is run by individuals, impacted by trauma in their own lives, who volunteer to serve others. They know how significantly lives can be impacted, restored, and healed when caring, compassionate people will walk with them on their journey to healing. We are constantly ‘sharing hope’ because God gives us more than we need!
