Increasing H.O.P.E. welcomes referrals from non-profits, churches and other professionals. We work best with clients who are motivated to improve their lives, who are willing and able to work hard, but who need someone to guide and encourage them. Typically, these people already have jobs and are earning low to moderate incomes.
If you have clients who fit this description, we can come along beside you to provide them with financial training. Referrals may be made to our program coordinator by calling (843) 225-4343, or by email at email@example.com.
Increasing H.O.P.E. provides webinars and online classes which teach people how to improve their credit; plan a budget; reduce debt; create savings; buy or sell a house; plan for taxes; and other practical topics in financial education. The webinars are free; some classes have a small materials fee. In addition, we also offer one-on-one counseling for housing, as well as a Women’s Small Business Center and an accelerator program for minority entrepreneurs with innovative ideas.
We are actively working to enrich the economic ecosystem in the Charleston Metro Area to support stability, growth, and prosperity for people and small businesses from our historically under-served neighborhoods.
