Get Involved

1HOPE helps you make a difference where it matters most. Whether lending your expertise or using your professional skills, you have the opportunity to offer your life as a beacon of hope to many. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is – what are you doing for others?” By restoring hope and transforming lives you’re actively answering that question. We invite you to get involved!

The thing that will transform our city most is getting back into the neighborhoods. Through 1HOPE’s unifying model, they will help to bring greater impact to our community.

–  Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian
