The Fort Worth HOPE Center is a nonprofit, community-based organization. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2004 (EIN # 01-0801061), we have served low-income and unemployed families in Fort Worth and Dallas since 2002. Our motto is “Fight HUNGER and Feed HOPE”. We “Fight HUNGER” through food distributions three times a week to families whose income falls within the TEXCAP income guidelines for poverty. We “Feed HOPE” through vocational training in our School of HOPE, where adults earn certifications in various areas to qualify for a wide variety of jobs in the community. In order to get a job many people need to have a “new Smile” because of rotten and broken teeth. Our Hope SMILE Center is dedicated to giving individuals a second chance to find employment by restoring their “Smile”. There is nothing more wonderful to see our adults who have been isolated and unable to work because of condition of their teeth, and now they are released to face the world again with a new SMILE prepared to find employment. We build collaborative relationships with job training and placement organizations for adults and their families in an effort to improve their overall quality of life.
We have more than 400 volunteers logging over 23,000 hours annually. We have expanded our volunteer base through having corporate volunteers come in and work as part of team building exercise.
