Mission Statement 

The mission of Building Hope Inc. as a Comprehensive Program is designed to assist displaced single parents with children throughout the Washington Metropolitan area. Bridging the "gap" between displacement to independence. During the period with Building Hope Inc, it is the express goal to provide families with the necessary tools and resources to stabilize the family, then  transitioning the family to independence. 

About Us 

Building Hope Inc. is a  community based organization founded in 2003 by Coressa Williams with a mission to make a difference in the lives of others by offering a positive environment and lifestyle. Over the years, our program has expanded its outreach to add empowerment programs for the children of displaced families as a means to provide exposure and opportunity.  We provide supportive services for more than 500 families in a given year.

Our Program

Building Hope Inc. receive calls from local organizations, Department of Social Services, the faith-based community and private entities identifying a family in crisis and inquiring how a family may receive services provided through Building Hope Inc. We currently offer the following services:
