Operation HOPE, Inc. (HOPE) is a non-profit, public benefit organization, founded immediately following the civil unrest of April 29, 1992 in Los Angeles. HOPE is America’s leading provider of economic tools and services. HOPE is an effective facilitator, lender, advocate and educator for and on behalf of the other America.
Through a series of public/private partnerships and strategic alliances, HOPE has developed and implemented programs focused on connecting the minority community with mainstream, private sector resources, and empowering under-served communities. While HOPE is actively and directly involved in the communities it serves, the long range programmatic objective of HOPE is to literally “drive itself out of business.” HOPE desires to slowly transition out of direct program management, in areas such as lending, replacing the nonprofit with private sector providers. Further, HOPE desires to increase its direct support and involvement with community based non-profit organizations. HOPE brings together, under one organizational umbrella, some of the most talented, experienced and successful individuals that America has to offer, both from the minority and mainstream community.
