What a fantastic name for your organization - Hope. This is what kept us going each and every day after Sandy. May God bless every one of you! You are truly amazing!

Under the umbrella of A Future With Hope, Communities of Hope focuses on community development using the Shalom Initiative asset based model. Communities of Hope benefits a community by working within the community to identify needs, set priorities and work in partnership with the people it serves. Collaboration with different faiths, residents, local organizations, schools, government and businesses broadens the scope of what can be accomplished and yields a result that is greater and has more lasting impact than one group or congregation can establish on its own. Four congregations are piloting Communities of Hope this summer.
