Construction Continues at The Hope Center!

Things are moving right along with the expansion of our food services area. Crews have been working hard and taking advantage of the wonderful weather we’ve been blessed with.

On Friday the construction team poured the concrete for half of our expanded kitchen floor and for the lower level pantry expansion. Today the crew was back framing up the wood floorboards for the pantry ceiling/kitchen floor of the expansion project.

We are so thrilled with how quickly this much needed project is moving along! When you come through downtown Hagerstown on Franklin Street take a quick look at the project that’s easily visible looking up Prospect St. Or when you stop by for a shopping trip at our Thrift Store or drop off your gently used items take a moment to sneak a peek at the progress!

Follow us on Facebook to get the most up-to-date pics of the project and stay informed about the progress.

Renovating for a Better Tomorrow

Our transient area is getting a brand new tile floor! This is a much needed renovation to one of the busiest areas at The Hope Center.

New floor 1

This floor has an excessive amount of traffic 24 hours a day.  Everyone coming into The Hope Center walks on this floor.

New floor 2

This area is the transient waiting area during the day and the transient dorm at night.  This is also the place where our daily SoupLine guests meet for a devotional before lunch.

The old vinyl floor was cracking and peeling. Not only did it look bad but it also was a safety hazard. A new ceramic tile floor is being installed for the comfort and safety of our guests.

New floor 4

The total cost for this project is $9,000. Would you consider sending a special contribution to help offset the expense of installing this new floor?  By sending a gift, you will be playing an important part in making life better for many physically and spiritually destitute people.
