In cities across the United States, millions of individuals are struggling to get by.  As many as 37 million adults and 15 million children are living in substandard conditions and suffer from the compounding factors of unemployment, low wages, low educational attainment, single-parent households, lack of health care, and sometimes drug and alcohol abuse.


Often, whole neighborhoods and communities are affected.

From a desire to be a part of the solution to the problems that families experience daily in our community the City of HOPE vision was born in the hearts of the Mt Paran Church family.

The vision for the City of HOPE is to provide high-quality services that meet the physical, social, economic, educational, and spiritual needs of the greater Indianapolis metropolitan area.


The City of Hope will offer a full range of services adapted to the specific needs of local communities, including continuing help with transportation, housing, and food needs.

Ultimately, City of HOPE will focus on many areas of development, including:

  • Children
  • Youth
  • Families
  • Sports
  • Adult Education and Job-Training
  • Food and Clothing Assistance, and
  • Senior Independent Living

City of HOPE’s first priorities are to offer:

  • Ÿ A fully licensed day-care facility,
  • Ÿ A charter school for grades K-12, and
  • Ÿ Before and after-school programs, with arts, educational and athletic offerings.

Our goal for the City of HOPE is to minister to 5,000 individuals and as many as 1,250 families.


Help us get there.
