The Community Hope Center in Cottage Hills is getting ready for what organizers believe is its first ever open house. The event will take place this Sunday, October 19, from 10:30 to 2:30 and give the public a chance to see the many services provided to the community.
Lesta Lamb is a board member and longtime volunteer with the group and says she got involved after dropping off clothes:

Her first job was to hang clothes, but quickly moved into the office to help there and earlier this year served as the interim executive director while the group conducted a search to fill the open position. Sunday’s open house includes a lunch in their soup kitchen, a tour of the facility and a chance to speak to staff and volunteers.
