Hope Center Houston will celebrate its grand opening in its new location at 821 Peakwood Drive, Houston with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and building blessing Nov. 14 from 4-5 p.m. A celebration was originally planned for September, however it had to be rescheduled due to Tropical Storm Imelda.

Formerly known as 1960 Hope Center, Hope Center Houston is an assistance and day center where homeless individuals in the north Houston community can receive a hot lunch, shower, get laundry washed, get haircuts and receive clothing and hygiene essentials. The organization also offers counseling, mail service, resume assistance and computer access and provides identification cards through the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homeless Outreach Team.


The organization changed its name and relocated to a new two-story, 14,000-square-foot building over the summer, which allowed Hope Center Houston to expand its services.

In addition to serving as a day center, Hope Center Houston often opens its doors to the homeless overnight during inclement weather.

President Debbie Johnson said the nonprofit's biggest needs this time of year include winter clothing, such as gloves, hats, jackets and shoes, as well as gently used blankets and sleeping bags. Other donation needs and volunteer opportunities can be found on the Hope Center Houston website. 832-965-5511. www.1960hopecenter.com
