Operation HOPE at 21: Mission, Vision and Purpose Defined
The mission of Operation HOPE, Inc. (HOPE) is silver rights empowerment, or making free enterprise work for everyone. We accomplish this mission through our work on the ground as the nonprofit 'private banker' for the working poor, the underserved and struggling middle class. We achieve our mission by being the best-in-class provider of financial literacy empowerment for youth, financial capability for communities, and ultimately, financial dignity for all.
Since its inception in 1992, HOPE has served more than 2 million individuals, directed more than $1.5 billion in private capital to America's low-wealth communities, maintains a growing army of 20,000 HOPE Corps volunteers, has raised average credit scores for financial case management clients more than 120 points over an average 18-month period, and currently serves more than 300 U.S. cities, as well as South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and most recently, the United Arab Emirates.
