BOONVILLE - Hope Central in Boonville has officially re-opened. Our partners at WEHT-TV report the nonprofit ministry closed its former location last year and has moved into its new facility, which previously served as a car dealership.

Hope Central operates the Manna Market food bank, Grace Garments clothing bank, and Bibs and Bottle Boutique for diapers and other baby supplies.

"It's just awesome in terms of us being able to expand our program," Director John Phillips told the station. "We're going to partner with the Evansville Christian Life Center to teach the GAIN Program, which is a pathway out of poverty. So, we're really excited about what this new location can help us do for the community."
