“To me Hope means a lot of things. It means a change of my life actually…I think it’s creating something beautiful, whether it’s with meeting new people or creating something beautiful for the community. Personally, it’s opportunity. Cause it took me out of the streets. It put me in a better place.”
Hope Community created and implemented a vision for a neighborhood where most had little hope. One building at a time, abandoned spaces have turned into homes for families. But buildings alone do not make community. People must build a community, and that understanding is at the core of Hope Community’s approach to neighborhood revitalization.
