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.

If you ask Tiffany why she mentors, she might say, “It’s important to form a bond with someone, in order to make a difference.” Learning about Community of Hope’s opportunities through a Yelp discussion board, she applied and was matched with then 12-year old, Dasha. By November 2011, their relationship was forming and blossomed into something so strong and so beautiful. From being a shy, reserved child, Dasha has grown into a confident, strong young woman. “I mentor because it creates a life-long relationship,” Tiffany says. While only 2 hours a month is required for mentors to meet with their mentee, Tiffany and Dasha have spent a total of 154 hours together! “I learned how strong she [Dasha] was very early, based on her background and environment,” Tiffany said. “I understand how hard it is growing up, being a teenager, and having family issues. I applaud her resilience and strength.”
Stretching from Virginia to the Nation’s Capital are bridges – real and figurative. Community of Hope mentor, Kelly Peaks-Horner, is a Virginia native. On the other side of the bridge lives Nafia Brown, Kelly’s mentee. The pair lives close enough to consider each other “neighbors,” far enough to be strangers, but the bridge of Community of Hope is what connects them forever. Meeting Nafia in 2016, Kelly describes their early memories of “hanging out.” They began to bond through their outings, figuring out things they would like to do, and goals they would like to achieve. My life’s work has been in the pursuit of creating impact and making a difference, especially for young people. Mentoring allows me to continue with and fulfill that internal mission, create a wonderful relationship, and make an impact for both an individual and the community."
