The Hope Center

The Hope Center
1316 W Lawrence Street, Appleton, WI 54914
Office hours: Tuesdays 9:30am-12pm and Thursdays 1-3pm.
Please call for an appointment. Evenings and weekends also available if needed.

Who are we? The Hope Center is a group of volunteers from the Fox Valley area WELS churches who provide physical and spiritual support in Christian love for local families who are struggling with physical needs. We provide material assistance (baby supplies, personal hygiene items, etc.) and are a distribution site for the Fox Cities Diaper Bank.

Where are we located? In 2016, The Hope Center relocated to newly remodeled space in the old school building at St Matthew Lutheran church on Lawrence Street in downtown Appleton, WI. To access the Hope Center office, ring the bell at door #5.

How do I get an appointment? If you are in need of assistance, please call 920-739-0039 or email thehopecenter1316@gmail.com to schedule an intake appointment. We are typically available on Tuesday mornings (9:30am-12pm) and Thursday afternoons (1pm-3pm). Please call ahead for an appointment to make sure there is a volunteer available to assist you. Evening and weekend appointment times may also be available as requested.

We do have some volunteers that are available to make home deliveries if you do not have access to transportation. We ask that you make efforts to find a ride for your first intake appointment at the Hope Center but delivery services may be available for subsequent needs.

Who do we serve? We seek to provide help and hope to those in need in the Fox Valley. No matter what your age, nationality, race, income, disability, or religion, we are here to help. We care and we can help! All services are free and confidential.

How can you help? The Hope Center appreciates prayers to our gracious God on our behalf. Additionally, we are in need of volunteers to expand our availability and also to serve as substitutes for existing shifts. We also appreciate your financial assistance and donations of hygiene items.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Kara Witthuhn, Client Services Director of The Hope Center, at 920-739-0039.

Compelled by the love of Jesus, we provide help and hope to those in need—for now, and for eternity.
