Our History

In 2002, Akm Rahman called a meeting at the Coleman Young Community Center, with a group of community activist from the Metro Detroit area. These community activist were appalled that so many of our neighbors were in desperate proverty, and wanted to help. Akm formed Hope Center, Inc. to give immediate relief, by distributing food to the poor. Over the years, more than 500 volunteers have distributed food from the center’s offices. We since offered a range of other services. Over the years Hope Center has expanded its services and recently reshaped in organizational structure. Today it is a 501©3 tax-exempt organization located on 1.5 acres of land at the corner of Joseph Compau and Carpenter. The site was Formerly Krejenke Buick’s used car lot and our building covers 2,700 square feet,. The front of the building (400 sq feet) has been extensively remodeled in the last year.When Hope Center was formed, we had no idea that the national economy would soon face the worst slump since the Great Depression! Since our region is so heavily dependent on the now ailing auto industry, the local poverty is, for many, absolutely devastating. The services we offer are needed now, more than ever!
