People are struggling in our community and something has to happen. This is why we are partnering with an organization called Hope Center Ministries to bring hope and freedom to hurting people.

We want to see lives transformed

and addictions broken through Jesus.

Hope Center Ministries exists to lead addicts and their families to become fully devoted followers of Christ. This isn’t just another rehabilitation program. It’s life change.

Hope Center offers both 8 and 12 month programs consisting of 3 phases which are designed to introduce their residents into a life free from the bondage of addiction and give them purpose and independence as they become faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Addiction not only affects the individual but also their entire family. With this in mind, a portion of their program is structured to ensure that the families of residents are able to participate in the recovery of their loved ones in a safe and structured environment.


We are looking for as much community support as possible to launch Hope Center in Kennett. To do so, we have started a fundraising campaign to secure the finances necessary.
