“That was a huge turning point in my life where I saw my peers taking action on something that they cared about. I saw young leaders who were well prepared and researched and were connected to mentors, and connected to a broader community. So from there I went through the training and after the training, Hope has continued to provide a platform for me to act and to reflect and continue to grow and continue to learn.”
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.
