For 33 years, Community of Hope has provided hope and stability to low-income and homeless adults and children in DC. Our holistic range of programs - from healthcare to housing with supportive services and programs promoting strong families - helps underserved residents create stable lives for themselves and promising futures for their children.
The Wallaces have dubbed themselves the ‘official family’ of Community of Hope’s Family Health and Birth Center, and with good reason. Although they gave birth to their first daughter in January at FHBC, Mr. and Mrs. Wallace still find themselves visiting at least twice a week.
Upset by the impersonal care she received from her obstetrician during her first weeks of pregnancy, Mrs. Wallace began her search for a health center where she’d be able to receive holistic care from midwives.
Two days later, she and her husband attended their first class at FHBC and knew they had found the right place for their growing family.
