Health and Well-Being
We are passionate about creating healthier communities. Through innovative services and programs, it is our goal to help individuals and organizations manage their healthcare and health related needs effectively, efficiently and affordably.
The Hope Center is a community-based support center that is housed at the Tabernacle church. Weekly, the Hope Center hosts a food distribution, providing individuals and families with supplemental groceries, access to a free medical clinic through a partnership with UTMC’s Community Care Clinic, and a host of other wraparound supports for individuals and families.
No preregistration or documentation needed.
We can’t provide the support offered through the Hope Center alone. Weekly, we need 40-50 volunteers to help us accomplish our mission. Complete the Volunteer Form below and let us know the date and time that works best for you and become a part of the Hope Team.
