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.
When 21-year-old Daeja Kennerly moved into The Triumph, she knew that her challenging journey with unstable housing was finally going to change. For several years, Daeja and her three young kids experienced homelessness – from living with different family members to securing housing only to face eviction shortly after. Unfortunately, this part of Daeja’s life had seemed never-ending and hopeless.
Anthony and Mari Baylor and their two sons, Khaiyel, 6, and Kyando, 12, entered Community of Hope’s transitional housing program in 2018, after having endured many obstacles as a family. Before Community of Hope, the Baylors faced housing instability challenges that forced them to live with family, in condemned apartments and even motels.

It all starts with a place to call home. Community of Hope worked to end and prevent homelessness for 1,159 families, including 3,590 individuals in 2018.
