Business leaders in Atlanta have a longstanding tradition of banding together to enhance the lives of residents throughout the region and improve the overall quality of our city. Operation HOPE shares the belief that a strong community is the foundation for the success of its people, businesses and community organizations; and that a core element in fostering a vibrant community is expanding economic opportunities, particularly to those residents who might be traditionally overlooked.
Operation HOPE and the new HOPE Financial Dignity Center at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church will be keys to realizing those opportunities. As the anchor tenant of the newly constructed Martin Luther King, Sr., Community Resource Complex next to the historic Ebenezer Church, Operation HOPE will provide programs and services to help communities grow and thrive — raising credit scores, creating homeowners, training entrepreneurs and raising financial dignity
The HOPE Financial Dignity Center is currently supported by a landmark, five-year, national Framework Agreement signed between Operation HOPE and the Financial Services Roundtable (FSR), including $1 million commitments from SunTrust, State Farm Insurance and LPL Financial, $500,000 commitments from Wells Fargo and MasterCard with significant additional financial commitments from The Coca-Cola Company, Kaplan University, United Way, Equifax and the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
