When you support HOPE Literacy, you support some of the people hit hardest by COVID-19. The foreign-born have come to our nation seeking hope for a better future, and they are willing to work for it. HOPE Literacy's English and citizenship classes make the American dream possible.
“Nearly all Americans have ancestors who braved the oceans – liberty-loving risk takers in search of an ideal – the largest voluntary migrations in recorded history… Immigration is not just a link to America’s past; it’s also a bridge to America’s future,” President George H.W. Bush pointed out. By supporting HOPE Literacy, you support America's future.
Supporting HOPE Means Supporting Citizenship
HOPE not only equips churches to teach English, but many of our programs also prepare students for citizenship. We provide classes in civics and American history. Many newcomers have become American citizens as a result.
Supporting HOPE Means Supporting a Better Future
As COVID has put a strain on all of us, immigrant churches have picked up the slack and served as distribution points for food during these trying times. When given the tools to succeed, these new Americans pour back into their communities, building a better future for all of us.
