Reducing Adult Arrests

HOPE is working to expand the Adult Pre-Arrest Diversion Program to include certain non-safety traffic offenses.

Affordable Housing

HOPE is monitoring the use of the County’s HOPE Affordable Housing Act of $10 million annually to ensure the funds to families and seniors with low and very low incomes.

Systemic Bias in Policing

Over the past several years, we have heard many stories of HOPE members or their loved ones who have experienced unnecessary stops by law enforcement because of the color of their skin. They are pulled over for no reason and are let go without an explanation, warning, citation, or arrest. HOPE is working to address systemic bias in policing.

Access to Mental Health Services

Hope is working to ensure people with mental illness and substance use disorder have access to needed services by working to get a Recovery-Through-Work Clubhouse established and 500 more units of Supportive Housing.

Reducing Youth Arrests

HOPE is monitoring the recent expansion of the Youth Civil Citation/Arrest Avoidance Program in our county ensuring more children can be diverted from the criminal justice system.

OUR ACTIONS: How we make change happen

HOPE’s largest event in the year is our Nehemiah Action, where we bring together over 1,000 people to stand face-to face with our decision makers. In the presence of our people we ask them to commit to make necessary policy changes that will positively impact the issues impacting our families.
