The Community Hope Center in Cottage Hills has continued to serve people in need during the pandemic.  While the number of people it serves has remained steady since March, the way they serve the public has changed, moving to an appointment-based system called “Client Choice” which allows more one-on-one time with clients and volunteers.

Donations for both holidays will be accepted, and they will still need a few volunteers but due to COVID-19 those numbers will be limited.  For more information on volunteering, call 259-0959 extension 231, or follow the link at this story at Alton Daily

If you need help for you or your family, call the center at 251-8021.
