Chambersburg Thrift Store at 64 S. Main Street


Our Hagerstown store schedule is not changing and will be open on Wednesdays operating on regular hours. This closure is only affecting the Chambersburg store.

We will post once the Chambersburg store reopens on Wednesdays. Until then please continue shopping at our store every day of the week except Sundays and now Wednesdays. Our store still offers gently used items like clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, household items, toys and more all at great low prices perfect for any budget! And the best part is that every time you purchase from our stores you are helping people in need in our community.

Hopeful Hearts Benefit Concert

Members of the Youth For Christ Club at Barbara Ingram School for the Arts are hosting a special benefit concert for The Hope Center on October 21st, 2017 at 7pm at Bridge of Life Church at 14 S. Potomac Street in downtown Hagerstown.

Hopeful Hearts (2)This concert will feature the talented Youth for Christ students who attend the art school located in downtown Hagerstown.

The concert is a free event and open to everyone to attend but a freewill offering will be taken and all proceeds will go towards the various programs, ministries, and outreach events at The Hope Center, including our current plans to renovate our kitchen and dining area to increase the size to be able to feed more people on a daily basis.

Mark your calendars so you don’t miss this opportunity to see local students using their gifts and talents to help reach people in need in their community. It’s wonderful to see young people who have been given such incredible talent use their gifts to help their community. Please support these young people by coming to the Hopeful Hearts Benefit Concert later this month. And be sure to spread the word to your friends and family!

Welcome Mayor Gysberts!

We were very excited to have the Mayor of Hagerstown, David Gysberts, stop by The Hope Center for a visit.

This is the first time that our new mayor has been to The Hope Center and this was our opportunity to meet with him and give him an understanding of what we do and the chance to see first-hand all of the various ways The Hope Center is helping in the community.

Mayor Gysbert 2

Like we’ve said before, The Hope Center gets no money from the government so it’s special when we are able to show elected leaders how the community is working together to help each other without the need for tax money. The Hope Center truly is a community outreach!

During the ninety minutes that the mayor was with us, he learned more about the programs and services provided. He was able meet with many of the men enrolled in Foundations Life Recovery program. He was given a tour of our facilities and was able to meet many of our staff.

Mayor Gysbert 1

During his time with us, the mayor asked many questions and was genuinely interested in all the many things that we do at The Hope Center. In fact, he was surprised at the size of our facilities and the scope of services provided here!

We are so thankful that Mayor Gysberts took time out of his busy schedule to learn more about what we do and tour our property. We hope that this is the beginning of a great relationship with the City of Hagerstown!

If you would like to learn more about all the various things that we do or if you’d like to become a faithful supporter of our ministry, please call 301.739.1165 or email us at
