To expand economic opportunity in under-served communities through economic education and empowerment. Operation HOPE (HOPE) improves the economic quality of life for individuals, families and communities through programs that create stakeholders: converting check cashing customers into banking customers, renters into homeowners, small business dreamers into small business owners, and minimum wage workers into living wage workers.
HOPE’s ultimate mission is to eradicate poverty by focusing on the 21st century’s next civil right, what HOPE calls “silver rights.” The Silver Rights Movement recognizes Ambassador Andrew Young’s belief that “living in a capitalistic society with no access to capital is a sophisticated form of slavery.” The Silver Rights Movement works to give under-served and low-income Americans a chance to become active participants in our free-market economy.
