CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE OF RURAL AMERICA
Together for Hope is a rural development coalition servicing the 301 counties of persistent rural poverty in America. We believe assets-based community development is the best first step in fighting poverty in rural space. To that end, we work with communities in order to hear their dreams and begin to take steps toward those visions. Within these communities, Together for Hope holistically fights poverty focusing on four priorities of hope: Education, Health & Nutrition, Housing & Environment, and Social Enterprise.
PRIORITIES OF HOPE
Hope, simply put, is the belief that things can change for the better. This is more than optimism; this is real faith/belief/conviction. After analyzing all of our TFH sites across America, we realized that we put our faith in action in four main areas. We call these areas “The Priorities of Hope.” These are the priorities where our hope confronts poverty; where our faith turns into action.
From literacy to leadership.
HEALTH & NUTRITION
From summer food programs to medical clinics.
HOUSING & ENVIRONMENT
From building houses to creating safe space.
From starting ethical businesses to reimagining local economy.
We look forward to hearing from you!
