Hope for Atlantic City is a Christian Community Development Organization that helps those who live in poverty escape it permanently, Many of our Atlantic City neighbors are struggling to provide the basic necessities of life. Families are fractured and children drop out of school. This unspeakable decline in standard of living has left Atlantic City crying for help in a cloud of despair. .... BUT THERE IS HOPE! We know that lives can be changed and communities transformed by the love of God. While many people have left for the suburbs, we want to relocate into the city. By moving into the city we are able to build close relationship where mutual dignity builds trust. We want to go to where the brokeness is and share in the suffereing and pain of others while becomming one with our neighbors. Relocation transforms "you, them and theirs" to "we, us and ours". We believe that true and lasting change takes time and requires real relationships and Hope for Atlantic City is committed to doing just that!! Our hope by the grace of God is to transform the lives of men, women and children for generations to come and to restore Atlantic City to what it once was. We hope that you will join us in our mission.
