Center of Hope is dedicated to helping people fight food insecurity and improve nutrition. The aim is to ensure that everyone has enough good quality food to lead a healthy life.
This goal can only be achieved through our community members and organizations such as Tarrant Area Food Bank, area grocery stores, restaurants, and individual donations. The Center of Hope strives to provide a large assortment of nutritious foods such as fresh breads, bakery items, meats, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
The pantry is open Monday – Thursday from 10 AM – 2 PM and Thursday evenings from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM.
Center of Hope serves hot meals through our dining room. This program relies heavily on volunteers from local churches and businesses.
If your group is interested in serving in the kitchen/dining room, please contact Colleen Wiley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-594-0266 ext. 311.
The dining room is open Monday-Thursday from 10 AM – 2 PM.
Financial assistance is provided to individuals facing financial challenges due to low-income or a recent emergency. The majority of our financial support helps families with paying a portion of their utility bill.

Kingdom Smiles provides affordable urgent dental care to low-income participants in Parker County who are experiencing serious dental pain or other health issues related to dental conditions. Long-term, restorative solutions are offered for those participants needing extensive work to extract and replace teeth with dentures when medically necessary or to increase their ability to be employed due to the unsatisfactory appearance and/or health of their teeth.
Any participants requesting services through Kingdom Smiles will have a consultation with the Coordinator to assess their dental and financial need. If the participant qualifies for services, a treatment plan is established by our partner dentists and/or oral surgeons who provide these services to the Center at greatly reduced rates.
Kingdom Smiles partners with 12 local dentists and oral surgeons to perform all of our dental services. To view the list of our partners, visit: Dentists of Hope

With the help of our partner, Safe Harbor Counseling Center, we are able to provide counseling sessions for struggling individuals.
Participants requesting help will go through an interview process with an advisor and/or life coach to assess their situation.
In addition, Center of Hope offers “Keep CALM”, a 5-week class addressing how to have peace in a chaotic world. Based on the book “Anxious for Nothing” by Max Lucado, we help participants celebrate God’s goodness, ask God for help, leave concerns with God, and meditate on good things.
Every participant’s situation is different. Sometimes the support an individual requires is not within the scope of our work. We partner with agencies in Parker and Tarrant County to help individuals get connected with the agency that best fits their needs.
