HOPE International is a non-profit of excellence. I spent eleven weeks at HOPE volunteering and was positively impacted by the degree of genuine care and authenticity I saw expressed in the office between staff and through partnerships abroad. Not only does HOPE have great intentions to reach those in need and share with them the love of Christ by word and deed, but HOPE strives to be wise and knowledgable in their technical programs for microfinance and savings and credit associations. This organization is growing rapidly; yet, the growth is wisely measured and analyzed so as to best be stewards of that growth. HOPE International is an organization of great value that seeks to love its neighbor all around the world and do that by being excellent in every detail throughout its scope.

As visitors view the exhibit or hear about HOPE International for the first time, I am always blessed by their excitement about HOPE's work because of what a great job HOPE is doing throughout the 15 different countries they work in. I've also experienced the heart of all the staff as they choose to work at HOPE with incredible qualifiacations because they love the work that HOPE does and the impact this organization has abroad.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
continue to work on relationships and connections from the institutions abroad to the HOPE base in Lancaster.
