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.

Maya Brice is a woman of hope. This DC native and single mother of three sought a fresh start in Missouri. After experiencing hard times and years of struggling to try to make it on her own, she and her kids moved in with a friend. Unfortunately, Maya’s monthly rent contribution was mishandled by her friend, and Maya chose to move her family into an extended stay hotel. The usual monthly rent became a weekly hotel bill. Maya shares that at that moment she had to ask herself, “Is this the best situation for me and my kids?” and concluded that it was not.
Charles Barrett and his ten-year-old son were given a fresh start when they were introduced to Community of Hope, where they received support from two of our programs. After losing his job and falling behind on his rent, Charles was evicted and became homeless. With the advice from his sister, he reached out to the Virginia Williams Family Resource Center and was placed at one of Community of Hope’s temporary housing sites. Charles noted, “It was embarrassing when we got to the shelter, but then it was a relief that we had somewhere to stay.”
