Please Help Us Fight Poverty! 

HOPE worldwide is an international charity that changes lives by harnessing the compassion and commitment of dedicated staff and volunteers to deliver sustainable, high-impact, community-based services to the poor and needy. On the national level, we provide several signature programs that engage volunteers to serve their communities through local chapters, such as HOPEww Charlotte, that offers a progressive set of programs to serve the greater metro and surrounding areas of Charlotte, NC. 


The Charlotte Chapter of HOPE worldwide is collaborating with several organizations to help break the cycle of poverty through two innovative programs - Bridges out of Poverty and Getting Ahead. These two programs are providing our community with a common language that enables community leaders, people in poverty and service providers with the skills needed to discuss and identify solutions for barriers to escaping poverty. Citizens from all economic classes work together to find solutions that help men and women living in poverty transition out. 

The local chapter is also helping meet the physical needs of people in poverty by providing meals for the homeless through programs with the Dove’s Nest, Charlotte Rescue Mission and YMCA’s Room In The Inn. HOPEww Charlotte also holds annual canned food drives, stocking Loaves and Fishes pantries for 3 months, and in collaboration with Classroom Central hosts a School Tools Drive to help make sure under-privileged children have supplies needed for learning.  The local chapter partners with the American Red Cross to sponsor semi-annual blood drives and for the MLK day of service where volunteers go door to door with fire prevention information in neighborhoods historically identified as at risk.  Recent additions are wellness and disease prevention programs in partnership with Atrium Health, formerly Carolinas Healthcare System.

With your support, we can continue these programs and do so much more to improve the quality of life for those in the greater metro and surrounding areas of Charlotte, NC.  75% of your donation will stay locally in Charlotte to grow local programs and 25% will go to HOPE worldwide’s Global Needs fund to continue elevating the lives of the poor around the world.
