Mission Statement

Imagine...every child and youth in every neighborhood growing up in a safe, stable, nurturing home, enjoying good health, succeeding in school, and continuing on to financial self-sufficiency.


Fostering Hope Initiative is a neighborhood-based collective impact initiative designed to strengthen families, mobilize neighborhoods and promote optimum child and youth development. It is a partnership of nonprofits, schools, businesses, local government, the faith community and parents joining together with a common goal.
