HOPES Center is a sponsored ministry of the Racine Dominicans, whose mission is: Committed to Truth, Compelled to Justice. As a sponsored ministry, HOPES Center is an extension of the Racine Dominicans’ ministry and service, and it must address an unmet or under-met need in the community. The Racine Dominicans provide HOPES Center with governance, financial, technical, volunteer, and spiritual support, as well as mission focus.
