Serving with CCOC

You aren’t really living until you’re making a difference in this world.

We want to help you change the world around you, because we can’t do it without you. HOPE takes inspiration from our global efforts while making a difference right here in Cincinnati.

Cincinnati has a charitable chapter In collaboration with HOPE worldwide. HOPE quickly expanded its reach, building relationships with partner organizations and mobilizing thousands of volunteers. While maintaining its Biblical foundation, HOPE worldwide was compelled to find new and innovative ways to fight poverty, respond to disasters and foster a culture of volunteerism.

Whiz Kids

We have partnered with City Gospel Mission to offer reading tutoring and mentorship for elementary students at Amity Elementary, our neighboring school. The goal is to encourage and empower students to grow in their reading and social skills, while learning about Christ. This takes place every Tuesday; let us know if you would like to be a tutor!

Contact Mike at for information or to volunteer.

Food Pantry

Families from around our city step into a food pantry to receive food to keep their children fed and their shelves stocked. We are always looking for volunteers to serve or donate food. Let us know if you would like to contribute!

HOPE Scouts

HOPE Scouts was founded by our youngest volunteers and is aimed at creating opportunities for students K - 8 to contribute to HOPE worldwide programs and efforts in meaningful ways. This program enables children to impact those in need while instilling a commitment to service in their hearts. Under the supervision of their Scout Leaders, troops routinely support local programs and distinguish themselves by their passionate service. 

In addition to these programs, we host semi and annual programs. Look for announcements on when each program is taking place to participate! Links are updated when sign up is available.
