Operation HOPE (www.operationhope.org)

Operation Hope

Founded in 1992, Operation HOPE provides negotiation assistance for homeowners with their respective lenders, support in the loan modification process, counseling on avoiding mortgage foreclosure and house to effectively sell your home and purchase an affordable home as well as how to budget and restructure your existing debt and obligations. HOPE also provides comprehensive consumer credit counseling. All Raise the Roof participants have full access to all services provided by Operation HOPE.

While HOPE is actively and directly involved in the communities it serves, the long range programmatic objective of HOPE is to literally "drive itself out of business." HOPE desires to slowly transition out of direct program management, in areas such as lending, replacing the nonprofit with private sector providers. Further, HOPE desires to increase its direct support and involvement with community based non-profit organizations. HOPE brings together, under one organizational umbrella, some of the most talented, experienced and successful individuals that America has to offer, both from the minority and mainstream community.
