“It’s such a successful community project. It’s really important to support it. Its effect is far reaching, I mean, look at it! It’s on two major crossroads-Portland and Franklin. The positive things it is doing is spreading. And if it were to degrade back to what it had been, that would spread also. As far as urban development goes, it’s a brilliant example of what can be done. And it has to be maintained.”
Our Mission: Hope Community creates connections that strengthen the power of community members and communities. We cultivate community leaders, build community capacity, care for the housing and community spaces we develop, and pursue equity and diversity in all we do.
