Covid 19 Response
Since COVID19 hit, we have had to adjust how we operate. Everyday we are doing outreach in our community, assessing the community's needs and providing assistance and referrals. We also respond to emergency food deliveries to the Elderly and the vulnerable. We have also partnered with Rebelle Bagel and Hometown Cafe & Poke Bar to provide fresh vegetables and fruits to our delivery clients.
In July, we hired eight teenagers from our community. We received an overwhelming response of 40 applicants. We continue to receive calls asking if we have employment opportunities for high school and college students. As we draw near to the holidays we know many families are desperate for extra money for all sorts of reasons. Help us to continue providing employment opportunities. We position our youth to learn life and business skills while they earn.
Billy Taylor Summer Basketball League

Mt. Hope Cowboys Football Team
The Mt. Hope Cowboys have a been a staple football team in the Mt. Hope Community for over 30 years. 2020 was the first year the team (or any team for that matter) didn't have a season. As they prepare to recruit and provide a safe place for the youth for their 2021 season, please help them continue to provide a safe place where youth can learn, grow and be the best they can be.
