Voice of Hope has been recognized and received numerous awards over the years. In 1991, Voice of Hope was presented the "424th Point of Light" award by President George Bush for outstanding service to the West Dallas community. Voice of Hope is a two-time Crystal Charity Ball beneficiary--in both 1998 and 2004. We were also recognized as a Dallas Morning News Charity. In addition, Voice of Hope has received recognition from The Hillcrest Foundation, Meadows Foundation, etc. Voice of Hope has operated from the same facility on Gentry Drive, in Dallas, Texas, since 1982. Since then many children and teenagers have participated in our programs. Voice of Hope has a rich history in the West Dallas community. Many lives have been touched.

“When the school bell rings, we have an opportunity to come alongside the school, the parent, and the community to reinforce what happens in the school day and prevent summer learning loss,” shares Voice of Hope President, Edward Franklin.

Our ASPIRE after-school curriculum is customized and contextual to resonate with our children. Within the public school space, Voice of Hope seeks to walk alongside the school as an extended learning partner. We also laud parents for their irreplaceable role in a child’s academic and spiritual development and are continually finding ways to support the family unit.
