The HOPE Center collects, receives and distributes food and other non-food essential items to charitable agencies that assist people in need in Harford and Cecil Counties. These beneficiaries include local senior living communities, emergency pantries, churches and programs that serve our community. 


Our Mission

The mission of The HOPE Center of Maryland is to bring Hope to those in need within our community. Through collaborative efforts, we are collecting food and other essential staples and distributing these products to our network of community beneficiaries. Our efforts are providing these churches/programs/agencies the resources they need to optimally support the people they serve.

Friends of the Hope Center

The Friends of The HOPE Center of Maryland are devoted volunteers who have come together on behalf of The HOPE Center.  These “good neighbors” provide charity works to local non-profit organizations, schools, churches, and individuals in Harford County. These works involve assistance with “collection drives” for needed items, special projects, or giving a helping hand wherever there is a need. "Our Friends" are caring community stakeholders with big hearts.

Get Involved!
