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 - Our holistic programs 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.

This week Community of Hope celebrates the life of one of our founding members, John K. Lunsford. John passed away on August 3, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. Our founder, Tom Nees, shared memories of John’s role in our early days. Tom served as John’s pastor and their conversations often gravitated to how they and the church might respond to the needs in impoverished neighborhoods in the city.
D.C. native Terry Boone describes himself as a man of many hats – he’s a banquet cook, an ad-jingle-making musician, and a martial arts enthusiast. His passions have taken him all over the East Coast, meeting many people along the way. “But what people really remember me for is my smile,” he says. Who does he credit for his healthy and happy grin?
