HOPE on the broader King Center Campus.  

Operation HOPE is honored to operate our flagship HOPE Financial Dignity Center at Ebenezer, located within the Martin Luther King, Sr. Community Resource Complex in Atlanta, Georgia, on the broader King Center campus.  

The HOPE Center, Ebenezer will increasingly become ground zero for the national expansion of our HOPE Inside and HOPE Inside + movement of empowerment centers, focused on increasing credit scores and economic empowerment opportunity for the working poor, struggling class, and struggling middle class across the nation. In this regard, Operation HOPE seeks to continue and expand on the unfinished work of Dr. King's last and final movement, the Poor People's Campaign, focused squarely on eradicating poverty, and providing opportunity for all.
