“At Hope Community, it’s not just providing an affordable apartment, it’s about how can we help people succeed? How can we invest in people so that they can advance in their education, so that they can be homeowners one day, so that their kids can go to college?”

Power of Vision Mural Project challenges Hope to think about art as a tool for leadership and community building in addition to strengthening artistic skills. Each mural is driven by a collective vision centered in community. Since 2004, Hope youth have worked across differences around the common goal of completing murals symbolizing community, understanding and hope.
