The Center of Hope

The Judy D. Zelnak Center of Hope, opened July 2013, has become the home to all of The Salvation Army's social ministries programs in Wake County. More than just a building, the Center of Hope is a place where weary souls can find rest, empty stomachs can find a warm meal, and families can find a home during difficult times. This new space has allowed for the expansion of all of these services to families in need, including many more available beds for women and children who need shelter. Located at 1863 Capital Boulevard in Raleigh, the Center of Hope offers more services to the community than ever before.
