About the Organization
Community of Hope is a mission-driven, innovative, and rapidly growing nonprofit. For nearly 40 years, we have provided healthcare, housing, and supportive services for low-income, underserved, and homeless people in Washington DC. At Community of Hope, we care for families by providing direct services with a focus on prevention, healing, and wellness. We improve lives by building on families strengths, honoring their choices, and taking a whole-family, multi-generational approach. We lead and advocate for system change to address the effects of historical and current racial inequities on health outcomes and housing opportunities. We embrace the diversity of our community, welcome all voices and perspectives, and treat everyone with respect, compassion, and integrity. We strive for excellence in all that we do, implement evidence-based practices, measure our outcomes, and use this knowledge to continuously strengthen our work. In 2020, and in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, we were selected as one of The Washington Post 150 Top Workplaces based on feedback from our staff.
