Operation HOPE, Inc. (HOPE) is a non-profit, public benefit organization, founded by John Bryant immediately following the civil unrest of April 29, 1992 in Los Angeles. HOPE is America’s leading provider of economic tools and services. HOPE is an effective facilitator, lender, advocate and educator for and on behalf of the other America.

Operation HOPE seeks to make the development and “privatization of inner-city and under-served communities” a top priority; serving as a bridge and facilitator between mainstream and minority communities. The mission of HOPE is empowerment.

The objective of HOPE’s work is life sustaining change, rooted in individual, vested interest. HOPE. does not promote either a “Great Society” or conservative bootstrap approach, but rather seeks to find the sensible middle ground in every situation, wherein both parties have an interest in the outcome.

The mission of HOPE, through (1) partnership, (2) investment, (3) lending, (4) practical education, (5) technical assistance, (6) advocacy and outreach, is to “bridge the gap.
