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.
The Washington Post, January 4, 2017 - Rashidah Shabazz looked across the living room of her Southeast Washington apartment and pleaded with Jamia Morrow, a case manager from Community of Hope, a charity that helps lift District families from homelessness. Maybe Jamia could answer a few of my questions?
The Washington Post, December 26, 2016 - In April, a 6-year-old boy was shot after someone kicked down the door of his apartment in Southeast Washington. Two bullets passed through his left arm. “Non-life-threatening injuries” is what they would eventually call it, but his mother, Bianca, was understandably upset.
The Washington Post, December 6, 2016 - Hope wasn’t sure she wanted another stranger looking over her shoulder. Once a ward of the state, Hope grew up in foster families. Strangers dropping into her life was bad enough. And when they dropped out? Sometimes that was even worse. “Once I get used to you, I get used to you,” said Hope, 25, who last year was living in a District homeless shelter and expecting a child.
