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.
As we continue to celebrate Black History Month and honor local black leaders who have made history, Community of Hope had the pleasure of speaking with Eric Holder, the first African American Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Holder was not only a leading federal official responsible for the protection of security, rights, and interests of the American people – he is also a DC local committed to making a difference in the lives of Washingtonians!
On January 4th, I celebrated 20 years as CEO of Community of Hope. A lot has happened in that time, both professionally and personally. I have been reflecting on my first few days at Community of Hope – when we had about 30 staff, a budget of about $1.5 million and a lot of financial instability. Our one health center was serving about 2,000 patients and our housing program served about 30 families at a time at two locations.
Anisa was in and out of the foster care system growing up. In her home state of North Carolina, she was constantly moving from home to home. Now a mom of four young children, she had little confidence that she could provide anything different for her children, as she has always known a transient life. When she was introduced to Community of Hope, that changed.
Community of Hope provided over 57,294 quality, compassionate healthcare visits to 13,835 patients in 2019 across Washington, DC.
164 families in Community of Hope's housing program worked with our Employment Specialists and were twice as likely to find jobs in 2019.

100 percent of families served in homelessness programs were stably housed or in positive destinations in 2019.
Community of Hope has grown to serve 7x as many patients and homeless families in the last 15 years.
It all starts with a place to call home. Community of Hope worked to end and prevent homelessness for 1,227 families, including 3,690 individuals in 2019.
Community of Hope works to improve health and end family homelessness to make Washington, DC more equitable.
