Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT: Help & Hope Center is a 501(c) (3) human service organization whose mission is to meet the immediate needs of residents of Douglas and Elbert counties who are in financial distress and/or at risk of becoming homeless, to help them work through troublesome times with dignity.

Organization History

In 1984, Castle Rock churches joined forces to create a centralized location to send people in need, and to encourage volunteerism by providing opportunities for their congregations to become directly involved with their community. Mrs. Mela Rudolph, the organization's founder, began by setting up an emergency assistance center in her garage. As the community grew, the agency expanded to begin serving residents of Douglas County, and later Elbert County. For 37 years, the Center has worked to provide and expand services to community residents who are most in need.


"Help and hope center allowed me to keep a roof over my son's head. I'm a single dad and am doing the best I can. It took a lot for me to ask for help but I had to set my pride aside for the safety and well-being of my son. Help and hope center was able to help me keep moving forward and not keep falling behind. Thank you everyone involved." ~ HHC client
