Our Mission

Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE) aims to foster a culture of solidarity between students and the homeless community. HOPE members engage in direct community service to build a connection between homeless citizens and the wider community. Based on these connections, HOPE engages in advocacy efforts with partners across the state of Rhode Island, to address the structural issues of homelessness. HOPE as an organization is committed to fighting for a society in which no citizen experiences the hardships of homelessness, hunger and poverty.

HOPE is a program of the Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University.
