Gulf Coast Hope Center provides update

Scoggins said he is currently expanding his Five Star business and the result will be additional space for the Hope Center, including a storage area Scoggins would like to keep stocked with items such as furniture and appliances in the event of, say, a fire which burns a family from their home.

“We want to have enough on hand to help people in our community,” Scoggins said.

He emphasized that despite its controversial beginnings, the Gulf Coast Hope Center had been an extension of his ministry which had avoided the many pitfalls critics were concerned about given its affiliation with the Panama City Rescue Mission.

“You gave me your word and you kept your word,” Magidson said. “That’s a big deal these days. The city appreciates what you have been doing.”
