This journey started with one man’s vision to improve the lives of those who had little to no access to resources for health, opportunity, progress and education. In the many years since, the road to H.O.P.E. has engendered the support and kindness of a committed team, touched the lives of many, and most importantly, created a movement of education, health, and action that finds a home in this campus.
