Meet Our Partner
Tiqvah Hands of Hope started fall of 2009 and was modeled after a program in Chicago serving one of its most impoverished neighborhoods. With the goal of impacting children's lives body, mind, and soul; Tiqvah began developing relationships in the S.E. community center by helping students get homework done, provide meals on a daily basis, and encouraged creativity through different enrichment options. When we began to out-grow both the space at the community center as well as the space at the local church, we realized the Lord was calling us to help more than just the S.E. side of Canton. Tiqvah opened its first location in 2012 at St Pauls Episcopal Church, offering services to families that was already part of the Tiqvah Community. Soon, we were offered a partnership with the Canton City school district. They began bussing the children to us from 15 different schools. As we continued to grow both programming and attendance, we soon found a need for yet another move. Now in our current home, Christ Presbyterian, we are still serving Canton City Schools while loving our families.
