About Community Hope Center

The Community Hope Center is a program-based project that impacts the low-income, poverty level families and individuals living in and around Osceola County, Florida. The primary emphasis is to serve those living homeless or in motels and hotels along Osceola County’s 192 Corridor. This programs works to restore dignity and self-sufficiency to those in need in our community through a holistic approach to case management, funds assistance, and life skills. The mission of the Community Hope Center is to provide assistance to all of those in need in our community. While we’re not a crisis center, we abide by a “no wrong door” policy and are committed to providing resources or referrals for those who are actively searching for assistance and who are willing to forge a path towards self-sufficiency. We see each person as a whole child of God with individual needs and experiences. Our path towards self-sufficiency is tailored to each client, allowing them to seek help from the social services that best fit their situation. This “hand-up” method provides the greatest amount of success, allowing our clients to become independent. This program is not an overnight process, which makes it crucial for individuals to be able to seek the help they need before it becomes a crisis situation. We want to work with each person to identify their current needs and empower them to make positive change in their lives through our assistance. The program is intended to provide gap services to clients that other agencies are not currently providing. The intent of the organization is to be a collaborative effort between local churches, social service agencies, Osceola County, the city governments, and community businesses.
