In 2022, the Community Connection Group was pleased to find out that what had formerly been known as Clark’s Corner, also located on Broad Street had been deeded with intentions to serve the soup kitchen and its needs. The opportunity to create a home for the organization that would have running water, electricity and even a full-service kitchen was now presenting itself. The possibilities were endless. The groups came together to brainstorm the next step realizing that a door had been opened that would allow them to not only serve breakfast on Saturday’s, but possibly grow it into something much more. It was a hope that many might call crazy. The building needed so many repairs that starting from scratch was the only option. Crazy? Maybe, but if Lindsey Byrd had listened to those who had told her that creating a soup kitchen was crazy idea, there would be many in our small community who may never get a hot meal. It was decided that the soup kitchen needed a real name and what better than Crazy Hope Community Center.
All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.
We are asking for donations to go towards the construction and renovation of our Community Center. Even better, all monies are tax deductible. No amount is too big or too small. We have no doubt that our faith has gotten us this far, however with your help Crazy Hope Community Center can become a safe haven in our community where anyone can come to be fed and blessed. To make Crazy Hope Community Center a reality we are renovating in a four phase approach. Phase one goal has been met(THANK YOU). Construction on roof will start soon. Phase two goal is $200,000 to construct bathrooms, gathering room, conference room and office. This will allow us to move current operation into Crazy Hope Community Center. We want to thank ALL who has poured into Gods Ministry.
