Yesterday we had an incredible family time at the Family Garden Day along with PCPC City Missions! We had Kunthear Mam-Douglas, a master gardener, come teach our families and children how to be the best gardeners!

Safe, fun, and family-friendly days like yesterday are the type of events we strive to have with our Family and Community Services department. However, we need YOUR help to continue hosting these events here in West Dallas. Please consider giving today, remember that ANY amount will help!

A study conducted by McREL with funding from the Department of Education, found that afterschool programs had positive and significant effects among students at risk of failure in reading or math.

Reading achievements were proven to be significant, which is why programs like ASPIRE Afterschool are key for improved academic performance in our local community.

Support programs like our ASPIRE afterschool program and consider giving on NTX Giving day to Voice of Hope! Link in our bio.

We provide children with character models, educational support, and life skills.

Voice of Hope Ministries, Inc., founded in 1982, is a Christian community center founded on principles of self-help, spiritual enrichment and urban renewal. Voice of Hope Ministries exists to provide children living in the neighborhoods of West Dallas with strong character models, education support, life skills, and family support services needed to become productive Christian citizens.

“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.

Voice of Hope also offers Summer Camp, Early Childhood Education & Care, and Family & Community Services. Our reach extends to West Dallas, Gradus, and Grand Prairie.
