Mission Statement

Our Mission: To improve the health and quality of life for low-income, homeless, and underserved families and individuals in the District of Columbia by providing healthcare, housing with supportive services, educational opportunities, and spiritual support.

Our Values: Serving with Compassion, Integrity, & Respect. Striving for Excellence.


At Community of Hope, we strive every day to provide our underserved neighbors with the building blocks they each need to create meaningful lives and a better future. By doing so, we believe all families, including children, in Washington, DC will be healthy, stably housed, well educated, and financially secure.

Our caring, respectful, family-oriented approach helps strengthen the family unit by giving each family member the tools they need to live healthy, stable lives.

Our wide-ranging programs address the array of challenges faced by homeless and low-income families with children. Our federally-qualified health centers meet the primary healthcare needs of the un- and underinsured. Through our housing programs, homeless families find stable homes and case management services to link them with resources such as job referrals, counseling, and housing. Our educational programs provide mentors and tutors to work with the children, to help them overcome the instability created by homelessness.

For over 30 years, Community of Hope has provided hope and stability to low-income and homeless adults and children in DC.

In 2012, Community of Hope was awarded The Washington Post Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement and The Washington Post.

Our History: Community of Hope in Washington, DC has been helping low income and homeless adults and children for more than 30 years. Originally founded as a compassionate ministry of the Church of the Nazarene, Community of Hope was incorporated as an independently-run nonprofit organization in 1980.

Our Strategic Plan: One of Community of Hope’s strengths is visioning and planning strategically for the future. As a result, we have been able to more than double the number of people we serve in the past five years. We make our hopes and dreams become reality. Join us in working to achieve our bold goals to improve even more people’s lives.
