Mission Statement


Since its founding in 1985, H.O.P.E. (Helpers Overcoming Problems Effectively) has been serving St. Mary?s County residents by bridging the gap between local congregations and those in need. We are a non-denominational organization guided by a volunteer Board of Directors working in partnership with over 20 churches and numerous community service groups. We have become a United Way organization with direct donations recognized as tax deductible by the I.R.S. With a track record of sound fiscal operation we are proud to say that eighty-five percent of financial donations go directly to those in need. H.O.P.E. assists community residents with utility and fuel oil payments, one time only rental assistance, and assistance paying for medications. Requests of other types may occasionally be made. Persons can self referral, be referred by their churches, or by the local Department of Social Services. They can call or visit the office in person. In conjunction with the church housing the H.O.P.E. office volunteers man a food bank four mornings a week. Annually, over 225 families are delivered groceries for a complete Thanksgiving dinner as well as being supplied additional food stuffs.
