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.
