Review for HOPE, Duluth, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

First and foremost H.O.P.E. Inc exceeds 5 Stars. Too bad that is the limit that we can rate. This is how a nonprofit organization should be ran. This organization is not only professionally operated, but it is operated with compassion, standards, and love. Hope isn't just a staff or team, they operate like a family unit. The first person I spoke to whom name is Charmaine was such a sweetheart. Very pleasant and happy to want to help. I didn't get that feeling of just being another number or statistic. I didn't get treated like a failure or burden. I was encouraged from day one by her and lifted up. Some of us been getting beat down. let down, and ran down. H.O.P.E. Inc doesn't waste anytime in evaluating your situation. The President CEO Kenita Lewis is such a blessing and has a heart of Gold. That heart of gold trickles down into everyone else that is working with her. You will get more than you expect from H.O.P.E.

H.O.P.E. Inc is out help and empower single parents whom are working F/T and in school F/T. What I love about H.O.P.E. is that they don't just want to assist you. They don't want to just give you money and let you be. They truly want to empower you. They don't want all the hard work of a single parent whom is in school and work be in vain. We know when we are financially strapped, it is hard for us to concentrate and focus on things. Our grades can be effected along with our job performance, and parenting.

Hope even offers counseling to their candidates. H.O.P.E. offers financial education to their clients as well. I mean some of us aren't as financially educated as we can be. They use Dave Ramsey whom is a great teacher on fiances using Biblical principles.

Another thing I am so thankful for and love about H.O.P.E. Inc is that they don't discriminate. I am a single father and let me tell you. I am working on my Bachelor's Degree in Religious Studies. I have had doors slammed in my face and denied help just because I am a man. I have gotten strung along in the family court system, child support system, and financial help system. I have gotten the, "You're a man attitude" so you don't need our help. Not with H.O.P.E. Inc though. I was embraced with love and so welcomed. They welcomed me with open arms and didn't make me feel like less of a man because of my current situation which is turning around.

H.O.P.E. Inc isn't just a nonprofit organization to me. They are an answer to my prayers from God. I know everybody isn't a believer, but I truly am and H.O.P.E. strengthens my belief. When I was down and out, I didn't give up, I found Hope :-)

Hold on and don't give up, there is and always H.O.P.E.

May H.O.P.E. Inc continue to empower and trail blaze the way. I hope other nonprofit organizations learn from this one.

Last but not least I am honored to be the very first single father with H.O.P.E. Inc.

I am truly blessed and humbled because only God could have directed my steps to a nonprofit organization like this.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing.. I pray that they continue to be able to empower people and expand.
