The Hope Center for Kids is located at 2200 N 20th Street and strives to faithfully inspire hope in youth and children through education, employability, collaboration and faith. Annually, The Hope serves nearly 1,000 youth and children through daily programming and events.

The Hope focuses on inspiring the hearts of youth and children to pursue their dreams and succeed in their lives beyond The Hope Center for Kids. We want to see our community transformed through changed lives by equipping young people to make positive life choices in pursuit of a big future.

Education – Youth will graduate from high school with the expectation of pursuing learning opportunities after high school. Hope is learned through education.

Employability – Youth will develop the skills needed to be gainfully employed. Youth will be ready to get and keep a job at the completion of their time at The Hope Center for Kids.

Collaboration – Partnering with others in the city increases our ability to impact youth in North Omaha. We believe “one plus one equals three.”

Faith – Youth and children will have the opportunity to hear about and grow in the knowledge of God’s love. Faith is the means for lasting transformation.
