Through the first three quarters of 2014, HOPE has closed over 1,100 loans to support members with the purchase of automobiles, the building of credit and alternatives to payday lending.
Jerusalem Economic Development Corporation (JEDC), a faith-based organization that helps individuals and families rebuild their lives by offering housing and employment services, needed to renovate and refinance a duplex that would provide housing to homeless veteran families, so they came to HOPE.
