Fifty Years of Service to Special-Needs and At-Risk Children & Adults

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND:  HOPE Center was founded in 1962 with an enrollment of six children and a staff of two teachers in a building at East Montview Boulevard and Syracuse Street on property then owned by Ex-patients' Tubercular Home.

Growth was rapid and the Center subsequently occupied quarters at East Sixteenth Avenue and York Street, and then at St. Clare's Orphanage on West 29th Avenue .

A Certificate of Incorporation, as a non-profit corporation was issued October 1, 1965 by the Colorado Secretary of State.

The Center moved to 3601 Martin Luther King Blvd., leased from the George W. Clayton College Trustees in mid-1969, following an extensive renovation and remodeling program which appreciated the appraised value of the structure from $22,000 to $326,000.  This was accomplished through private, corporation and foundation gifts and an interest free loan from the College trustees through First National Bank of Denver .

In 1979, HOPE Center purchased the property at 3475 Holly Street for expansion of our Vocational Program.  The grounds consist of 92,000 square feet with a 24,000 square foot, one story brick building. 

In 1986, the Board of Directors began the search for a facility for its Early Education Programs.  In the fall of 1986, HOPE Center purchased the facility at 3400 Elizabeth, a 25,000 square feet, one story brick building.

Current average daily enrollment of over 200 children and 35 adults, with an average staff of 30 making HOPE Center one of the largest community based organization in the Denver area.

Over forty years of existence, HOPE Center has achieved a distinguished record of helping special needs children and adults advance intellectually, vocationally, emotionally and socially to become contributing members in their families and productive members of their community.
