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.
Community of Hope patients, Shermica and Don, were excited when they found out that they were going to welcome a new baby into the world. They began receiving care at a local hospital, and although the care was adequate, over time they began to realize they were looking for a different experience than what the hospital could provide. In March, they did a Google search to see if there was any place in the District they could have a water birth – an experience that requires the birthing person to be unmedicated and free to move around while still under the care of a medical team. They found Community of Hope.
Anthony Durant lights up when he talks about his four-year-old son, Amir. “He is very energetic,” laughs Anthony. "He is smart, talkative, loves to learn, wants to get into everything, and is not afraid to get his hands dirty. He wants to be a paleontologist.”
Supporting and encouraging his son comes easy to Anthony, but sometimes that comes with making hard and uncomfortable decisions. One of the hardest was deciding to leave their home and puppy for a fresh start.
Community of Hope’s Family Health and Birth Center moved to 2120 Bladensburg Road to Washington DC's Langdon neighborhood in March 2022. We are excited about this move and the opportunities our new location will bring to our dedicated team and patients. Our new space has more than doubled in size – allowing us to grow with our patient community.
