Founded in 1989, HOPE serves over 3,000 Latinas annually. Throughout the years, HOPE has served the Latina community with innovative programming that provides leadership development, statewide networking opportunities, experiential learning, and one on one interaction with local, state, and federal officials and agencies.

Programs include:

  • the HOPE Leadership Institute (HLI), established to train Latina leaders in advocacy skills enabling them to foster healthy communities statewide;

  • the 

    HOPE Youth Leadership Program (HYLP)

    , established to provide Latina teens with the skills necessary for self-empowerment;

  • the HOPE College Leadership Program (HCLP), designed to engage Latina college students and recent grads (ages 18-24) to support them in developing their leadership, advocacy and professional skills through training and access to a professional network.
