Community of Hope makes three primary promises to the community.
Caring for Families – We offer quality healthcare and stable housing to the most vulnerable mothers, fathers, and children who struggle with health and often experience homelessness.
Improving Lives - We focus on the strengths of each person, as they create stable lives for themselves and promising futures for their children.
Leading Change – Through partnerships and innovation, we work toward transforming systems to serve our neighbors better.
Caring for Families. Improving Lives. Leading Change.

“You have to leave!” Those words meant the end of “home” for Nikki. She and her two young children had been living at her mother’s home in Washington, DC until one day in early 2016. Nikki had just a week to figure out where she was going to live. Growing up, Nikki was in and out of shelters – all too familiar with the negative effects it could have on her children.
Not many people volunteer at their doctor’s offices, but Wallace Wilson makes it a point to. A professional barber and Ward 8 resident, Wallace came to Community of Hope on a friend’s recommendation. “He told me that I could get great care. That’s exactly what was missing from our neighborhood!”
