Unless the Lord builds the house its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise up early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat –
For he grants sleep to those he loves.
Psalm 127: 1-2
Urban Hope is a faith-based affordable housing nonprofit that is focused on the East End of Richmond. We help our clients gain financial management skills, provide safe, quality, affordable housing, and walk alongside clients looking to begin the pathway to homeownership.
We are working hard to shift the paradigm and help our clients navigate their way to greater stability, health, and prosperity through homes they can afford.
Of course monetary donations go a long way, but did you know that Urban Hope needs volunteers for renovations and ongoing maintenance projects too?
Do you have a topic that you would like us to discuss with your community members or volunteers? Let us know!
Stay up-to-date about events we are hosting! Whether it's financial management classes, one-on-one sessions, our bus tour, fundraisers, or community outreach, we would love to see YOU there!
Occasionally, our tenants have setbacks that make it hard to pay their rent. We would like to give them a constructive option to stay current, and even repair their credit: the Elevate Fund.
Newsletters, news items, great press...it's all here!
