Welcome to the Growing Hope Center In December 2007, Growing Hope purchased a 1.4 acre property at 922 W. Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti—just blocks from downtown and adjacent to a public housing community—to put down roots for its headquarters and further demonstrate our commitment to growing positive and healthy futures in Southeast Michigan. After four years, with mostly volunteer labor and lots of community support, Growing Hope staff, programs, and the organization as a whole moved in to the Growing Hope Center in March 2012!
