EMPACT YOUR COMMUNITY

HOPE

THE

PROJECT

Initiative

Through the generosity of our donors and friends since 2015 The HOPE Project has provided both case management and emergency assistance services to the homeless and those in need. The Hope Project provides services while operating as a community resource conduit and assisting low-income families and individuals with obtaining necessary life-sustaining resources at little or no cost. These resources include, but are not limited to early childhood development programs, housing assistance, homelessness prevention services, nutrition, GED preparation services, job readiness and placement services. 

 

We provide these services to low-income families and individuals who live and work in the following North Carolina counties: Cumberland, Bladen, Duplin, Harnett, Lee, Sampson, Hoke, Robeson, and Moore County. Many of the services provided are provided through community organizations that work in partnership with us in a unified effort to provide these necessary resources to qualified families and/or individuals.

 

If your organization would like to become a community partner with the HOPE Project, please complete the community partnership application.

 

Community Enrichment Events and Activities

 

These events attract families, individuals and a host of community services to promote health, literacy, counseling and many other valuable services that are available at little or no charge to the client. One of the annual events that we sponsor will be our annual community, friends and family day fair.

 

Developing Community Relationships 

 

By developing partnerships in collaboration with other community organizations, we increase our ability to help build sustainable communities. These outreach efforts help us meet the varied and changing needs of our client base.

 

Disseminating and Publishing Information

Communities that are economically and socially disadvantaged are often not aware of the services and programs that are available to them. Our goal is to reach the unaware by distributing and publishing information through literature, brochures and flyers that will be written in Spanish and English. In addition, our representatives will attend community events to inform communities of the vast array of programs, resources and services that are available. 

THP helps adult clients develop strategies to return to school, find employment, locate and apply for affordable housing, select qualified pre-schools and home-based child care sites in their community that will offer a recommended curriculum to their children, locate affordable and innovative after school programs and much more. 

 

Through our Community Support Initiative, we strive to integrate education, housing, nutrition and job training programs in order to make them available to each client we serve.

 

Our Community Outreach Program produces and coordinates community enrichment events and activities that develop and nurture community relationships and foster community support.

 

Events

 

The Annual Community, Family and Friends Dayis a day-long celebration that focuses on strengthening families and promoting health and education. This yearly event is free of charge and includes a host of activities and services, such as health screenings and examinations, special needs assessments, competitive sports activities for the children, including track and field events, basketball, soccer, and much more. The children receive T-shirts, medals, awards and lunch.

 

The Community Meal provides free hot meals to the hardest hit members of the community, its homeless population on a weekly basis. Through the collective efforts of our sponsors and volunteers we provide gourmet meals to homeless members of the community at no cost.
