Local Hope

At Hope, we want to reach the Triangle and change the world.

Local Hope exists to help meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of people from the local community through resources and volunteers.

Learn about the Homework Club

It’s about more than just homework. It’s about connecting with young people and putting them on a path to know and love Jesus. You can get involved today and start on the path to changing a child’s life. 

Do you need food assistance? We want to welcome you to the Food Pantry at our Raleigh campus (821 Buck Jones Road, Raleigh NC 27606).

Our new hours are Monday’s 4:00-7:00 p.m. and Wednesdays 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

You will be able to select from a list of items while waiting in your car. Volunteers will safely package these items for you and bring them to your vehicle.

 

Help us support the nutritional needs of our community through our Food Pantry. Check out the food list below for needed items as well as the collection times and locations per campus.

We are always in need of volunteers with Local Hope initiatives. Do you want to get involved in directly making a difference in the community? Check out the opportunities below.
