For a Greenhouse to flourish it requires prayers, a plan, and the people to act on those two things. At The Greenhouse for People our long term planning takes place within our community, amongst staff, and through our board of directors. Still, there is only so much any one of these groups can plan and accomplish, so we have created four subcommittees to help research, discuss and advice Hope Street's direction in four key areas: Programming, Fund Development, Shechem, Operations and Rising Hope. Learn more about these subcommittees below!

Meetings will be the second Wednesday of every other month. All meetings will be hosted at Hope Street @ 6pm.

programming committee

We are committed to offering classes, outings and events that foster a supportive and fun community. This committee is responsible for: Class Offerings, Volunteer Appreciation, and Resources. You should consider joining this committee if you enjoy connecting with our members, shaping culture, and researching how people best learn and grow.

shechem committee

  • Meets once a month

  • Hope Street is conducting its first major capital campaign for a Community Center called Shechem. This committee’s responsibility is to stay up-to-date on the building project, potential partners, and funding opportunities. This committee is committed to help research, develop relationships, and suggest strategies around each space that will be within the building. You should consider joining this committee if you enjoy fund development, relationship building and being part of a new initiative.

operations committee

  • Meets bimonthly

  • The primary function of this committee is to be in tune with the day-to-day Operations of Hope Street from staff (employees besides the Executive Director) to the building (2522 West Capitol Drive) and all other properties Hope Street has ownership of.  The following are expectations of the Operations Committee: 1. Prayer for staff; 2. Check in’s with staff; 3. Assistance with strategizing and facilitating major building concerns; and 4. Ongoing maintenance of building (helping us stay ahead of the game). You should consider joining this committee if you enjoy building maintenance and upkeep, passion for checking in and supporting staff or love to serve.

fund development committee

  • Hope Street is committed to stewarding the gifts and resources we receive with a thoughtfulness and intentionality. This committee will walk alongside Hope Street by providing support with fiscal needs by helping connect with passionate donors, organize events to raise awareness and funds, implement fundraising strategies and find ways to make Hope Street a more self-sustaining organization. You should consider joining this committee if you enjoy creative and strategic planning to engage our current donors, and invite new donors to experience and invest in Hope Street.

rising hope


Rising Hope is for young individuals (16-25) who are inspired to make a difference by engaging with Hope Street Ministry. Rising Hope shows you that you don’t have to have a ton of money or time on your hands to be a part of something bigger. You can get involved from wherever you are at.

  • Meets quarterly 

  • Here’s an idea of what that will look like:

    • Volunteer and become a part of this community. 

    • Provide a new perspective.

    • Attend meetings on a quarterly basis. (Skype in if need be!)

    • Get other young people involved by inviting them to events, bringing them with you to volunteer, and engaging with them on social media.

    • Get involved in fundraising through media platforms. 

    • Plan events and campaigns and bring your ideas into action.
