Urban Hope is invested in raising up generations of Black and Latino youth from Walltown who will make an impact in our community and beyond.

Watch Robert's story of being a young person from Walltown who returned home after college to invest in the lives  of others!

In 2017-2018, our investment in the lives of young people and their families will cost $140,000 (including summer and academic-year activities). 

Give of your treasure...

Whether you're already a champion for our cause or are just beginning the journey with us, please consider making a financial contribution to sponsor a young person participating in one of our Young Hero Labs.
