Does anyone know the current status of the House of Hope that was opened by the Friday family? I was in Lincolnton last week and the store front on Aspen street looked like it had paper on the windows and was closed.

Either channel 3 news or channel 9 news did a story about this a few days ago so you might want to see that report about it.

I found the story that Channel 3 did. House of Hope is actually going to move a couple doors down from where they currently are, and they will have regular hours. They also are now officially a nonprofit organization.

Are you refering to the story they done back in July of 2012? Or was there a recent one?

This place apparently is only open by invition or something but its funny considering people who are actually in need arent able to get the help. Plenty of locals are down on their luck because they spent their whole life working and now they barely have nothing.

The new store showed up a few weeks after the show aired this past christmas and claimed it would be open but it never did. I dont know if it ever did after their sign went up claiming they were reopening. If they are busy with other things then seek that out. If they wanna open a store to help people then open a store.

That shopping center is very very empty. Just recently a tanning place opened as well as something going on in Freds but that shopping center should see better stores. Pave the parking lot. Get a gamestop in there, an ollies, something anything...before all the brick and mortar buildings end up being just a website on the internet.
