Parking at the Clinic: Client volume has grown considerably in the past year, which means unfortunately, we do not have space in our back lot for volunteers, interns, and most of staff. Please arrive 15 minutes before your volunteer/meeting time to look for street parking. You can also use the paid lot at the Hutton Hotel ($10 for 2 hours, $20 for 2-8 hours). We are really sorry for this inconvenience, but desire to keep spots available for our clients. If parking is a barrier, they are likely to ‘no show’ and not receive our care. Thank you so much for understanding.

Get Started by Attending an Introduction to Hope Clinic!

Volunteers play an essential role to our programs and services and without the interest and dedication of individuals like yourself, we would not be able to offer many of our services. Our volunteer opportunities are great for individuals AND small groups (individual, church or business)! Often volunteers are the first people to connect with our clients and the impact you have on their life is best said by them:

“I called a number of places, but came here because the person on the phone really cared about me.”

“I was offered a genuinely kind ear, necessities for my daughter, a free ultrasound, and free parenting classes. I received phone calls weekly just to ask how my day was.”

“Since the first meeting with Hope Clinic, my life has changed. They made me feel that I belong to the Hope Clinic family.”

Get involved
