Our mission is to provide HOPE through education. By offering education, job training and life skills we believe that lives will be changed for the better. When we invest into individuals we are investing into families, neighborhoods and communities. When confidence is gained through education a person reveals the gifts that are within. Every person has something to offer. The Mahoning Valley Hope Center is a place that is willing to make these investments one person at a time.
Our goal is to create a platform of programs that will be as diverse as our target market. Together we can bring HOPE to the Mahoning Valley!
