About Urban Hope

New Homes, New Mercies!Continuing down the path of affordability in in Church Hill, and bringing families home!Urban Hope, a 501 (c) (3) Christian Community Development Corporation, was organized to partner with families seeking affordable home ownership. Urban Hope collaborates with Church Hill residents, local churches, city government, other like-minded agencies and friends to achieve its mission.

Urban Hope oversees the home ownership process from beginning to end including:

1.  Arranging and supervising housing acquisition and renovation

2.  Providing personal financial counseling

3.  Providing home owner education

4.  Connecting owner families with Mentors who offer practical, emotional and spiritual support

5.  Facilitating the finance acquisition process for home purchase

The result is strengthened families, strengthened neighborhoods, and a strengthened Church Hill community.

Get Involved
How can you be involved in Urban Hope? Because it’s a volunteer organization, Urban Hope depends on support from partners. Here’s how you can be involved:

  • Owner Families– Urban Hope has an application process for those interested in home ownership and rental.
  • Volunteers– Urban Hope needs volunteers for home renovations, fix up and ongoing maintenance projects. There are also opportunities for Mentor volunteers.  Mentors are matched with owner families to provide emotional, social and practical support throughout the homeownership process. Please check out our “Volunteers” page for more information.Work Group 10_3.8.16
  • Financial Support– In order to keep housing costs affordable, Urban Hope depends on charitable contributions to help defray renovation costs. Additionally, Urban Hope families often need furniture and other furnishings/supplies when they move in.
  • Investors– Urban Hope’s unique business model includes opportunites for individual investors to not only have a stake in putting families into homes, but also receiving a small gain on your investment.

For more information on our model see the Understanding Urban Hope link. For further information on how to get involved please contact us or call (804)396-2198. If you would like to make a donation to our Duplex Campaign click here.
