The Center of Hope offers an educational incentive class that will assist participants with outstanding traffic fines and/or suspended licenses. A partnership with the Wichita Municipal Court provides participants with the unique opportunity to pay off traffic fines through volunteer service.

The Center of Hope has a program of providing used bikes for those without transportation. This allows the individual to extend their capacity to find jobs and to get back and forth to work for existing jobs. Our supply of bicycles is very limited so they are only provided to those with referrals from case managers and those who receive homeless prevention or case management assistance from the Center of Hope.
