Café of Hope, Business of the Month for April

Posted: Friday, April 5, 2019

The Café of Hope, 900 E. State Street, was named Chamber Business of the Month for April. Café of Hope began operating as an outreach of Life Church Huntington in 2011. Over the years Café of Hope has given back to the community in a variety of ways.

The conference rooms at Café of Hope are available at no charge Monday to Friday, and for a nominal fee on weekends. Various Bible studies, small groups, support groups, small businesses, several scout troops and many other types of organizations utilize their space. Life Church always intended for this building to be a blessing to the community; entering their ninth year in operation, the café has become a staple in the community.

In November 2018 they instituted the giving wall. A donation jar sits by the cash register where they collect donations all month, and then give the money to a not-for-profit. They say what’s interesting is that since they began giving the money away donations to the jar have increased.
