Mission Statement


The Hope Center for Kids exists to bring hope to urban youth and children by leading them to personal faith in Jesus Christ and the fulfillment of their destiny. Our goal is to create a safe place in North Omaha where children can grow spiritually, socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. We do this by providing refuge, education, recreation and life skills training. Our work is supported by compassionate individuals, churches, businesses and other organizations in our community.

Description


The Hope Center for Kids got started when a youth pastor, Ty Schenzel, from Trinity Church started tutoring and mentoring at a North Omaha housing project "New Jack" in 1994. While building relationship with the youth he had the vision to create a center where many children and youth could be served. In 1998, thanks for the generosity of many people in the community, the former Gene Eppley Boys Club was purchased. Today, the Hope Center for Kids offers its 500+ members a place to belong, a sense of security and a multitude of opportunities to grow into productive adults. Our program serves children and youth ages 7-19 during the hours of 3:30-7 PM Monday through Thursday and 3:30-6 PM on Friday. During the summer we have programming from 2-7 PM.
