Why invest in HOPE?

For 31 years, HOPE has brought together diverse congregations of different faiths, race and ethnicity, and economic backgrounds to work side by side in improving our community. Annually, we gather over 1,200 people at our Nehemiah Action to hold local officials accountable for long-term changes to tackle serious problems plaguing thousands of families in our community.

HOPE makes Hillsborough County a better place to live, work, and do business.  An investment in HOPE is an investment in our community.

What We Have Done Recently

  • Got County Commissioners to establish a $10 million “HOPE Fund” to provide affordable housing.
  • Got Tampa Police Department to commit to train all 1,000 officers in Crisis Intervention Training to keep people with mental illness out jail.
  • Got county to start development on a Recovery-Through-Work program for people with severe mental illness
  • Got criminal justice stakeholders to expand the Juvenile Civil Citation policy, preventing life-long arrest records of 800 children in our county each year.
  • Got county to put $3 million for in-home services for seniors, serving an additional 1,700 seniors the first year.

Individual investors investing $50 or more and all corporate investors are recognized in our October Convention program and are publicly thanked if in attendance.
