The Foundation of HOPE addresses the problem of recidivism by offering inmates support and direction both during their incarceration and after their release. Increased capacity to make responsible decisions helps avoid repeat offenses. Since 2002, HOPE has been providing a continuum of care through chaplaincy, pre-release, and aftercare services.

The Foundation of HOPE has over 450 volunteers and utilizes community-based providers that support evidence based, outcome-oriented programs and trauma informed care that results in personal and career development and good citizenship saving tax payer funds and strengthening the community.

We hire passionate and competent team members. Many of our staff volunteered at HOPE before they were hired. ALL of our staff love their positions and what they do. Our communication is not TOP down. All staff opinions are valued therefore all staff put our clients first.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
