MISSON & HISTORY
HOPE Literacy focuses on the estimated 240,000 adults in Tarrant County who function at a basic or below-basic literacy level, especially those who cannot speak or understand English. Founded and built on prayer, HOPE Literacy seeks to empower and develop church and community programs that reach out to and serve immigrants, refugees, and those in need through English as a Second Language and Literacy classes.
HOPE Literacy provides recruitment, training, and financial support to mission-minded individuals, churches, and community ministries. HOPE is not intended to compete with any other secular or religious group. Our objective is to begin new programs and stand alongside existing ones to help them maintain a consistent standard of excellence.
In 1997, HOPE Literacy, Inc. became a non-profit corporation, registered in the state of Texas, based in Fort Worth. It received its 501(c)(3) designation in 2002.
We started the Metroplex Literacy Conference 5 years ago to raise awareness and meet Tarrant County's need for literacy programs. We joined the Tarrant County Literacy Coalition to network with programs and individuals in surrounding counties who share the need for literacy.
Our mission is to Help Other People Excel in life by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through English Language and literacy instruction: establishing, equipping, operating, supporting, and resourcing church and community literacy programs.
