Since 2014, The Bronx HOPE Inside has provided on-the-ground, in-person support to people looking to take back their lives by getting their financial house in order. We are there every step of the way as renters become homeowners, small business dreamers become small business owners and the hope-less become the hopeful.
Here at the HOPE Inside, you will receive one-on-one counseling to remove whatever challenges you face in your goal to buy a home, stave off a foreclosure, grow your small business and more.
Your first step to get started with most of our programs is to attend a workshop. After the workshop you will be assigned a counselor that will guide you on the road to financial freedom. Find and RSVP for an upcoming workshop here or to inquire about any of our programs!
