What's the Center of Hope?
The Center of Hope is a residential Christian discipleship recovery program in Clearwater, Florida. We are not a half-way house nor a homeless shelter. Our program is based on the unconditional love and grace of God. We focus on our identity in Christ and who God has made us as His children. The curriculum does an outstanding transformation in the men's hearts and we have not found any other teaching that does as a better job than this one.
The vision of the Center of Hope is to reach out to the unreached community of the addicted here in the Tampa Bay area and beyond. A hidden community within our nation that no one wants to talk about. The hidden hurts, hidden pains and hidden shame that keeps people in their life-long bondages. Every household has them. We can help!
Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ: it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."
Those who wish to enter the program must commit to the rules of the program. We ask for a 1 year commitment. 6 months in program and 6 months in transition, which really helps the men in the long run dramatically. Residents will be involved in daily classes and bible studies. All residents are responsible for attending group meetings and church services, doing appropriate chores and class work. Upon graduation we help residents in their move back into society.

Addiction Has No Prejudice!
Addiction is an epidemic throughout the U.S. today and it holds no boundaries on age, race, gender or financial standing. We seem to picture that only homeless people are the ones affected, but that's not true. Addiction affects millions of lives, the individuals and their families, every day. It steals thousands of lives every year through automobile accidents as well as overdoses. Over 90% of the people in jail or prison are there because of drugs or alcohol, as a result of being under the influence, possession, or crimes to support their addiction. This epidemic is out of control.
We have an 85% success ratewith clients who complete our program, which takes 12 months.
Over the past 10 years we touched over 1000 lives. They have regained meaningful full time work, being productive parts of society. Many have been reunited with families. Many have attended Bible College and many are in full time ministry. Over 300 people have been baptized. Thank you Jesus!
