Mission Statement

Community of Hope creates opportunities for low-income families in Washington DC, including those experiencing homelessness, to achieve good health, a stable home, family-sustaining income, and hope.

Description

Community of Hope advances our mission by providing direct services to families, advocating for system change, collaborating with others, and utilizing a person-centered, strengths-based, integrated approach to our work.

Through our five 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.

We have three federally-qualified health centers across the District that meet the primary healthcare 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.

If you have a passion for people, Community of Hope is a great organization to be a part of. The volunteer recruiter responded almost immediately. The application process was quick and easy. This is an organization full of the most friendliest people I have every met. So far, I have volunteered just a few times, but I would recommend anyone to be part of something great like their mission of helping families who are low-income in the community.
