The Fort Worth HOPE Center “Fights Hunger and Feeds HOPE” in the lives of thousands of children each year. In 2013 we provided groceries for over 45,000 children whose parents or caregivers lives in poverty.
In Tarrant county 505,987 are children under the age of 18 and of that number 122,550 are at high risk of suffering hunger. Thirty five percent (35%) of these children’s parents aren’t eligible to receive food stamps. So they struggle to feed their children nutritious foods. That is why they are so thankful to have a place like the Fort Worth HOPE Center where they find help in providing nutritious foods for their children. Some of these families have children living with them whose parents are in prison and the family is on a fixed income of $1500 or less a month. These families struggle to pay the rent and utilities, put gas in an old car, and try to keep the car repaired so it runs. There is little money left for food and the children are the ones who suffer.
These pictures are of children and their families who come to the Fort Worth HOPE Center for food and our Volunteers giving them food. Every Tues. and Fri. a weeks supply of groceries is given out to theses families and on Wed. food is given out in a Senior Citizen Village. Help us… help them. Give generously today. We welcome you as a volunteer to help us give out the food. Come at 10:00 am Wednesday morning and go through our volunteer orientation and get your badge and JOIN our volunteer staff. (Fort Worth HOPE Center: 3625 E. Loop 820 S. Fort Worth, TX 76119.) We need YOU!
