HOPE exists to improve the supply of basic human necessities for the neediest of the needy in the Third World through self-help activities, and to challenge, educate, and involve North Americans regarding development issues. HOPE is dedicated to working alongside the poor to devlop self-reliant communities. HOPE's commitment to helping the poor arises not only out of a heart for the needy, but also belief in the worth of people as created by God. HOPE is motivated by the mandates for justice and compassion as demonstrated in the life of Jesus Christ. Following Christ's example, HOPE extends assistance to the poorest of the poor without discrimination as to the religious beliefs of the beneficiaries.
