The Hands for HOPE (Helping Organize People for Empowerment) Regional Community Development Corporation will collaborate with other existing entities to innovatively and collectively address the barriers of the Pee Dee Basin Region, and will contribute to the success and productivity of life, work, play, and residency, while promoting growth.
Serving Anson, Chesterfield, Montgomery and Richmond counties, the Hands for HOPE (Helping Organize People for Empowerment) Regional Community Development Corporation envisions non-competitive collaborations with other entities to address the barriers of social, economic and political freedoms at all levels in the Pee Dee Basin Region.
Our organization is designed to enhance and offer additions in programming to currently existing programs in the four-county region, and to establish new programming when it does not exist. Our organization does not operate any programming except to ensure that grant guidelines are followed and measured success is available for all persons and things.
Targeted areas for improvement are:
- Female Empowerment
- Transportation Assistance
- Natural Resources
- Animal Life
We believe that we are a strong local grassroots faith-based organization made up of volunteers.
We believe that our Board of Directors is dedicated, committed, and team-oriented.
We believe in the value and worth of each individual being empowered to pursue their economic, social, and political freedoms.
We believe in the economic well-being of the population through entrepreneurship.
We believe in the empowerment of people for economic and emotional well-being, and support their independence and self-determination.
We believe in the value of a faith-based organization which promotes the above declarations.
Hands for HOPE Regional Community Development Corporation has been incorporated since December 2002, and a 501(c)3 non-profit organization since October 2003.
