A Vision for Expansion – Pray for God to Give Us Askew School

Jonathan Baldwin

For the past five years, Hope City has had our sights set on an old middle school building a few blocks away from Hope City. We have felt the constraints of our current facility, an old Boys and Girls Club. Its limited space has often forced us to turn away drug addicts that desperately need […]
