Our Mission

Our mission is to restore the hope that the future people dream of can actually become a reality. We are dedicated to inspire and equip underserved children, youth and adults to develop for themselves the solutions they need for the challenges they face.

Our Vision

Our vision is to awaken hope in those who have none and to awaken responsibility in those who can make a difference. We desire to bring together committed leaders, organizations and individuals who wish to revitalize under resourced communities by creating safe, sanitary and supportive neighborhoods. By doing life together we believe we can empower children, youth and adults to become agents of positive change in their community.

What We Do

Hope Global Initiative is a community development corporation that provides comprehensive and holistic services and programs for the disadvantaged and underserved children, youth and families in communities, locally and around the globe. Our desire is to provide a central location that offers programs that include education, workshops, leadership and character development, mentoring, and recreational field trips. We believe that we should help people develop their skills rather than focus on their deficits. We believe that if a sense of individual responsibility is established the community at large can do life together with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Only then can we nurture, support, strengthen and transform communities by building strong families and healthy, safe neighborhoods.
