Review for HOPE, Duluth, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

H.O.P.E. is an organization that prides itself on the efficiency with which it turns donor dollars into tangible impacts for its served communities in the Atlanta Metro area. It's this ability to drive immediate, direct, positive impact that initially drew me to the organization. H.O.P.E. doesn't just claim to contribute to breaking the cycle of poverty, it has the bona fide statistics to back it up. More than 90% of the program's graduates increased their income by $25,000.,38% of program participants were the first in their families to graduate from college, and more than 80% of graduates now report having emergency savings funds. I'm humbled by the opportunity to serve on the board of such a high-performing organization and can't wait to grow the program over the next few years.
