Hope For Harvest serves as beacon of community advancement for families in the city of Charlotte North Carolina with roots expanding over 40 years. Hope For Harvest first began its start as week-long fundraiser as an effort to fund and continue the services provided by Community Outreach Christian Ministries & The Harvest Kitchen after the passing of our founder’s mother, Pastor Barbara Brewton whom founded COCM. Pastor Barbara Brewton was responsible for feeding over 100,000 families throughout the city of Charlotte, leaving an incredible trail of Hope that still lives on today.

Driven by her late mother’s philanthropic efforts and passion for the helping underserved youth, Catherine Brewton officially founded Hope For Harvest in 2016. Hope For Harvest uses cultural influences and charitable resources to provide essential living items and services for Charlotte’s underserved youth, while providing an escape through music, dance and life development programs. Our recently re-dedicated youth center, the Barbara Brewton Hope For Harvest Youth Center, provides free services including after-school programs, tutorial services, nutritional guidance and performing arts programs for the youth in the community.
