About Fort Worth Hope Center


Thank you for visiting us 

My name is JoAnn Reyes, and I am the President and Co-Founder of the Fort Worth Hope Center. Since 2002, we have aimed to serve the DFW area by providing families with food and support. With the grace of God, my husband, Orlando Reyes, and I started this center after a tragic tornado swept through Fort Worth in 2002. We wanted to do something for the community and take in people who genuinely needed help.

Through our various services, we have seen struggling citizens around Fort Worth grow to become brighter people. People come to our center, hungry for hope. People can come to take educational classes to help them discover their true potential and get back on their feet. Any support from volunteer work or donations is greatly appreciated. And I cannot thank our donors enough for all they have provided us, and the future steps they are willing to take. Our volunteers understand that here at Fort Worth Hope Center, we are providing people with the skills and the opportunity to find their purpose in life. Whether they want to be a construction worker, a baker or a better parent to their children, they can find all of that and more at the Fort Worth Hope Center. God bless the people in our community that want to do something to help those in need.
