The Future is in the People
Hope’s work creates an environment with multiple opportunities – we call them entry points – where people can engage around their interests. What started out as a few programs 10 years ago is now a systematic approach to engaging people in opportunities to build more power for themselves and for their community.

Building Community: What it Takes
Listen and then engage people around their interests: recognize culture
Diverse staff build multi-cultural relationships
People build on strengths and develop their leadership and ownership
People build networks and connections is core

Our Community Engagement work impacts the broader community, not just Hope tenants, and is at the core of our community revitalization mission. This work is accomplished with a multitude of formal and informal partnerships, connections and networks.
