City Hope Community Center

Guests entering City Hope Community Center for the first time are often surprised that this room is meant for them. They experience the dignity of hearing their names spoken aloud at least 4 times during their visit, of choosing their meal from a menu of options, of lingering over coffee to watch a movie or play bingo or sing karaoke, and of knowing they are welcome to return again and again. Our Center is a beautifully renovated gathering place where volunteers and guests mingle freely, getting to know each other in an unhurried way over house-made meals from our own commercial kitchen. We delight in our guests’ lives, celebrating their birthdays and other milestones, connecting them to this community where they matter. Relationships built from these personal connections offer opportunities to support our guests with their path forward, whether it is toward sobriety, housing, reconciliation, medical care, or more.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
