New Home to Host Benefits, Fund Raisers & Rentals


By Cara Baker, Freelance Writer & Layout Artist


After renting an office space for more than 22 years, Mission of Hope Cancer Fund (MHCF) recently found a home of their own. Their new BELIEVE Center, located at 745 Lansing Avenue in Jackson, Michigan, opened its doors at the end of 2017.

Those native to Jackson may remember the building as the old Jackson Moose Lodge. Now the building’s 11,485 square feet of space and large parking lot will be home to benefit auctions, fund raisers, and numerous other activities, all in the name of helping Michigan residents facing cancer.

“We just knew that it would be beneficial to find a venue of our own, where we could do fundraising at our own facility,” said Rock Mangus, MHCF founder and executive director, adding that naming it the BELIEVE Center had been an early decision in the buying process. “We work a lot with the word ‘believe’ and angel wings; wanting to give the cancer patients we support the ability to believe in surviving their cancer,” he said.
