Hope Center for Children values the support of our donors and adheres to the standards provided in the Donor Bill of Rights, created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), and Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).


Donations of needed items are an invaluable way of supporting Hope Center for Children as they help each dollar stretch further. And it’s easy! Pick up an extra while you’re out shopping and challenge your friends to do the same. Are you part of a youth, church or civic group? Holding a donation drive for some of these items is a fantastic way to get involved and make a difference.

Donations of paper products, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, hygiene products, and non-perishable food are needed and welcome! Donations may be dropped off at our Administration Building at 202 Hudson L. Barksdale Blvd. during office hours between 9 am and 5 pm.
