“We must inspire and equip young people to develop for themselves the solutions they need for the challenges they face.”
The Verona Rosser Hope Youth Center
February 3rd, 2019 The Verona Rosser Hope Center officially open by hosting a Grand Opening Super Bowl Party! After months of renovations and repairs, The Hope Center was officially opened and children and parents from around the community were able to come see it and enjoy food, games, football and fellowship.
The Hope Center is fully equipped with basketball, foosball, ping-pong, video games, an art room, a computer lab, snacks, music, and much more. Kids of all ages are welcome and there are always volunteers their to ensure a fun and safe environment.
The Hope Center has now ben open for over a year and has become a staple in the community. Through our after school programs, summer programs, special events, mentorships, and other activities, we have been able to reach hundreds of families in the community and become a beacon of HOPE for the underserved. Anywhere from 50-100 students, ranging from 6-18 years old, regularly attend our after school programs and we strive to provide a place where they can come learn, grow and be inspired. We also strive to provide more one-on-one mentorship opportunities to build personal relationships with the students and find practical, individual ways to help. One of our long-term visions has always been to provide a central community location to coordinate comprehensive, holistic, integrated services with strategic linkages between the home, community and schools which will help strengthen families, help reach at-risk children and create a wholesome environment for youth development. At HGI, it is our desire to provide a Hope Community Center that is dedicated to increasing the quality of life for Newnan’s youth by working to reduce juvenile delinquency through programs that include counseling, education, informational workshops, leadership training, the arts and recreation.
We are ALWAYS in need of more volunteers to come and hang out at the center and help with getting to know the kids by inspiring, equipping and empowering them to HOPE! Please check out our volunteer page more information on how to get involved!
