About Neighborhood Hope:
In the city of Charlotte, not even 1 out of 10 people who start in poverty, will ever escape it. This means Charlotte is the worst city in the nation in that category. What does that mean to us at Neighborhood Hope? The Neighborhoods that we call family, that we have been developing relationships in for the past 11 years, are labeled as low income housing, which means these beautiful people are included in the alarming statistic of a lack of upward mobility. To be able to look into their faces knowing the odds are stacked against them, does not settle well with us.
We want to be a part of the solution in seeing hope come to life, and see these negative cycles broken. We exist to change the narrative of our city. No one organization can take this challenge on their back, the narrative can only change when everyone does their part. When different ethnicities and socio-economic classes come together to do life and become family, change will happen. We believe in community mentoring. Mentoring can have a powerful effect on the narrative of the child’s life, their family members, and the mentor.
Our programs focus on building deep meaningful connections with the communities we partner with. Each program has 5 strategic lessons that we focus on: #1 Receiving the Love of God #2 Self Love #3 Loving our Neighbor #4 Work Ethic and #5 Financial Literacy. We believe these five focuses will help alleviate poverty and give kids an opportunity to change the narrative of their lives.
