Hope Hall was founded in 2009 as the outreach arm of The Redeemed Christian church of God, Dayspring center to meet the practical needs of all people in our city irrespective of their ethnicity or nationalities.

The founding trustees were Vincent Omegba, Dan Lynch, Ray Cordova, Priscilla Omegba, Jay Dawson, and Liz Wenegieme. Max Edja joined the team in 2019 bringing in his financial, accounting, and business development expertise.

Hope Hall is committed to transforming the lives of all people who may have missed the opportunity earlier on in life to develop themselves into successful individuals by giving them another chance to fulfill their purpose and dreams.
We believe that once people are helped to find their purpose and are assisted with the tools and resources they need, they end up becoming responsible and successful members of our society. This is the basis of the commitment we make to those we serve.
As a Christian faith-based nonprofit, our actions shows the love of God to people of all ethnicities, nationalities, races, ages, social and economic conditions with the message of hope found in the saving power of God in Christ Jesus.
