FOUNDING SUPPORTERS 

When Federal budget cuts threatened to eliminate the only food pantry in Devils Lake, a few concerned individuals got together and decided to change the story...

 

A Planning Committee was formed with a mission of finding 20 Founding Supporters who believed in the vision of the Hope Center and would pledge $200 in monthly support for 3 years. It took 5 months, but a mix of churches, businesses and families stepped forward to fill the need and make the Hope Center a reality!

 

With monthly support pledged, the Planning Committee was able to procure the former Eagles Building in downtown Devils Lake and on Saturday July 20, 2013 the dream became action with the first food distribution in January 2014.

 

Our first goal is to open a food pantry to serve the needs of the Devils Lake Community.
