About COMMUNITY OF HOPE

Location:

4 Atlantic Street, SW, Washington, DC 20032, US

Mission Statement

Community of Hope's mission is to improve health and end family homelessness to make Washington, DC more equitable. Our vision is that everyone in Washington, DC has good health, a stable home, family-sustaining income, and a hope-filled future.

Description

Community of Hope has worked tirelessly for over four decades to impact the future for people in under-resourced communities and families experiencing homelessness in Washington, DC. With the help of our community of donors, volunteers and partners, Community of Hope stays focused on its strategic goals.

End homelessness for families in Washington, DC.

Through our four housing programs, we keep families - all along the continuum of homelessness - safe with a roof over their heads. Our case managers give our families the support they need at the most pivotal times and link them to resources such as job referrals, counseling and mentoring programs for their children.

Improve health and eliminate inequities in health outcomes in under-resourced communities in Washington, DC.

We have three Federally Qualified Health Centers and one community resource hub across the District that meet the medical, dental, and emotional wellness needs of the un- and under-insured. We provide quality, compassionate care and an outstanding patient experience, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. Our health staff engages our patients to keep DC healthy through affordable and accessible healthcare.

With a team of almost 400 compassionate staff, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of donors, we are building a strong and sustainable organization that is caring for families, improving lives, and leading change.
