    About Us

    HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects,) is your locally controlled, locally funded poverty relief organization. We have been serving Addison County since 1965, with a broad range of programs and services. We are dynamic and creative, and always looking ahead with an eye to new needs and trends. As times change, so do our programs. HOPE’s purpose is not just to administer its own programs, but to anticipate unmet and emerging needs, and to work with others to create a response.

    Our Vision is that all people in Addison County have access to the tools and resources necessary to meet their own basic needs.
