The HOPE CENTER is a place that provides hope for those who seek to live a better, more productive life through recovery and the improvement of life skills. We offer a place where people get a hand up, not a hand out.  It’s all about giving HOPE to those in our community while making Warren County a better place for everyone. 


The HOPE CENTER is 100% staffed with volunteers and we always need help! Think about what you could bring to help us help others! Can you teach others computer skills, resume building or design, or how to read? Can you spare a few hours a week answering the phone at our center or manning our booth at street fairs? Do you have great ideas or connections that could lead to a great fundraiser or a food and clothing drive? Are you great at managing social media and creating compelling messages? There are so many ways to help your community be a better place for all. Every person has something to offer. As Ghandi said, "Be the change YOU want to see!"
