Rising Hope is for young individuals (16-25) who are inspired to make a difference by engaging with Hope Street Ministry. Rising Hope shows you that you don’t have to have a ton of money or time on your hands to be a part of something bigger. You can get involved from wherever you are at.

20 for 20
Right now the best way to get involved is through 20 for 20! 20 for 20 is a campaign for people around the age of 20 to raise money in light of Hope Street’s 20th anniversary. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for the development of Shechem, our new community center, by the end of the year.
Frankly, young people don’t have a lot of money, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take part in the positive change taking place here! Giving $5 is as easy as skipping Starbucks one morning and giving $10 is as simple as laying off that Qdoba burrito. A little from everybody adds up quick, so ask your friends to get involved!
