Since 2006 Operation HOPE Atlanta, America’s has worked to educate and empower communities throughout Metro Atlanta, serving over 50,000 individuals and families, however, something special is happening in Atlanta, unveiled in November 2103, a continuation of Dr. King’s work, an extension of the Poor People’s Campaign.
Positioned as the anchor tenant for the forthcoming Martin Luther King, Sr. Community Resource Complex, in partnership with the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Financial Services Roundtable, the HOPE Financial Dignity Center at Ebenezer represents the first outside nonprofit organization invited to operate within the greater King Center in more than 30 years.
HOPE and its partners seek to utilize this new and innovative HOPE Center as a living, breathing, operating example of the next generation of financial literacy in America, which we believe to be Financial Dignity.
It is here where we will begin to build on King’s legacy in line with our mission to expand economic opportunity in underserved communities through economic education and empowerment. Improve the economic quality of life for individuals, families and communities through programs that create stakeholders: converting check cashing customers into banking customers, renters into homeowners, small business dreamers into small business owners, and minimum wage workers into living wage workers.
It is here were we aspire to turn the tide on economic disparity and poverty through education, exposure, and restoring dignity to communities that need it most. Dr. King was assassinated waging the Poor People’s Campaign, to empower the underserved. So when the question is asked what is being done now to continue his legacy, we are positioned to have the answer in brick and mortar, a city on a hill, in the shadow of his tomb and in the backyard of his historic pulpit, a place dedicated to serving and uplifting the community, champions for the underserved, champions of change.
