A Declaration of Hope: 2014 Signature Report

The power to build hope rests in the collective will of a community and its families. Because of this, we need to understand the interdependencies among families, neighborhoods, schools, local businesses, law enforcement, churches and nonprofits. We also need to acknowledge the importance of coordination among governmental sectors such as the judiciary, education, health and human services, as well as the role that philanthropy and business play in supporting strategies that improve the lives of children and families.

Many people and organizations are creating and expanding hope in communities across America. As you read about their efforts in this 2014 signature report, we hope that you, too, will be encouraged to continue your work to ensure that every child in America is surrounded by a Community of Hope.
