We are a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to helping others break the cycle of poverty in Parker County.
Restoring Hope and Changing Lives
In April 1998, the Provision Center was established as a 501(c)(3) helping with food and clothing to individuals in our community. By 2003, we had outgrown our facility, moved to our present location, changed our name to Parker County Center of Hope, and began to add programs and services to address the needs of our growing community. Today, with nearly 20 years of experience, we provide crisis assistance and long-term solutions out of poverty to thousands of families living in Parker County. We help those who are hungry, homeless, uneducated, unemployed, working but still living at the poverty level, single moms, the elderly, the disabled, disadvantaged youth and children, and families in crisis.
Through many years of working with these individuals, we have learned that while addressing the material aspects of poverty is important, true rehabilitation and restoration is only achieved through long-term solutions. We have focused our work on an integrated service model that addresses the holistic needs of individuals and leads them to a path of economic independence and improved quality of life. For years we have spent time building a coalition of local churches, organizations and individuals who all play an integral part in providing solutions to meet the needs of struggling individuals in our community.
- Every Person has value – regardless…
- Relationships are essential to discover the root of the problem
- Effective assistance requires accountability
- Long-term solutions require personal investment
- Success is achieved through addressing physical, educational and spiritual needs

Statement of Faith:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class difference.
