New parent resource center in Dubuque's Washington Neighborhood

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Washington neighborhood has a new neighbor: a center dedicated to helping parents.

Hope Evangelical Free Church opened the Neighborhood Resource Center in Dubuque and held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday.

To celebrate -- the group had a block party with free food, crafts, facepainting, prizes and music.

The center will offer resources for pregnant women, and moms and dads.

Hope church operated the ministry they call "new beginnings" out of the church building before opening this new center.

"I think it's a real need. I think it's one thing for churches to say, we have a position on certain issues. It's another thing to come alongside these young moms and say, 'Hey, we want to help you.'" Pastor Matt Collins said.

in addition to the parent resources now offered, church leaders say they plan to add other ministries to the center in the future.
