Together for Hope Celebrates 20 Years of Collective Impact

Twenty years ago, Together for Hope cast a bold vision—a
20-year commitment to the 20 poorest counties in America.

Today, we have nearly 50 partner organizations in many
of those counties throughout rural America and we have
expanded our bold vision to include all 301 counties of
persistent rural poverty in the U.S.

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.
