Mission, Values & Commitments


Hope Partnership aims to provide a holistic continuum of care in order to end homelessness and poverty in Central Florida. We do this by connecting service providers, businesses, investors, and clients with evidence-based solutions and trauma-informed care practices in order to strengthen communities, empower our neighbors, and build hope. The entities of Hope Partnership provide programming that is trauma-informed and client-centered to help achieve our goals to end homelessness and poverty.


Relationships: We commit to partnering with our neighbors, engaging our community with empathy, and valuing teamwork as a force for change. 

Dignity: We believe that the best gift we can give to clients is empowerment. We believe that our work should be trauma-informed and person-focused. 

Holistic Care: We commit to focusing on the whole person, extending grace and compassion, and working for just outcomes. 

Effectiveness: We will work to earn trust in our work by being people of integrity and competence. We will be action-oriented, letting our impact speak for us.

Leadership: The challenges we face are difficult ones, and they require us to be flexible, adapting to an ever-changing environment. We will solve problems courageously, forging unique methods when necessary. 

Sanctuary Commitments

The Sanctuary model is based on the knowledge that trauma and chronic stress have deep and lasting impact on human beings, families, and communities. With this in mind, we change the question from “what is wrong with you?” to “what happened to you?” when it comes to how we treat and care for our clients and each other. As Hope Partnership starts our journey toward Sanctuary Institute Certification we are committing to the following:

  • Nonviolence

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Democracy

  • Social Learning

  • Growth and Change

  • Social Responsibility

  • Open Communication

  • Equity & Cultural Humility
