HOPE is committed to making a difference in the Mid South. That unwavering goal is embodied in our mission, values and vision.
To strengthen communities, build assets and improve lives in economically distressed areas of the Mid South by providing access to high quality financial products and related services.
Three core values undergird HOPE's work. We adhere to these values without regard to circumstantial or environmental changes. They define our corporate identity. Our dedication to these values must be evident in our products, services and operations:
To be a community development financial institution that: provides a substantial number of low-wealth people and communities with the financial tools and resources needed to achieve a better quality of life; that influences policies and resources that impact our constituents and our interests; and that is financially self-sufficient.
