Mission

HOPE CDC’s mission is to inspire hope to the Wichita Metro Area and beyond through education, economic empowerment, and environmental community development. HOPE CDC’s work is largely focused on community education by increasing knowledge of and access to housing programs and direct support resource services, including financial assistance addressing the housing policy barriers faced by Kansas communities.

To accomplish this mission HOPE CDC focuses on addressing a narrow set of core housing policy barriers through restorative planning, engagement, and actions. These areas of housing include safety, health (decency), affordability, and special needs.

• Safety addresses initiatives and supports code enforcement, deferred maintenance, environmental conditions, and justice, which ensures housing equity for all communities
• Health and decency addresses initiatives and support for neighborhoods with declining housing values, pest control issues, urban blight, and lack of incentives for mixed income residents
• Affordability addresses financial implications such as developer costs for land acquisition, site prep, infrastructure, down payment and closing costs, rents and utilities payments, and limited resources
• Lastly, special needs addresses targeted and specific adjustments necessary for niche demographics, like seniors, veterans, foster youth, homeless individuals and families, ex-offenders, substance abusers, and persons with infectious sexually transmitted diseases, and those with AIDS/HIV

HOPE CDC is a nonprofit real estate developer focused on the acquisition, development, redevelopment, and operation of affordable housing for low-to-moderate income individuals and families, as well as commercial and church property. Additionally, HOPE CDC has a homelessness prevention program. The aim of the program is to prevent and protect individuals and families from imminent risk of homelessness, utility disconnection, or housing code violation by providing stipends or payments directly to the authority requesting it (landlords, banks, utilities, government, etc.).

There is a necessity for the holistic health of communities to reduce health disparities and improve the health of all Kansans. The physical conditions within homes, conditions in the surrounding neighborhoods, and the housing affordability are all major and interrelated housing issues that affect the overall ability of families to make healthy choices, according to a study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. HOPE CDC’s goals are to increase the stock of affordable housing, improve living conditions, prevent homelessness, and address housing policy barriers in the Wichita, Kansas Metro area and beyond.

By improving on the conditions of individual homes, neighborhoods, and communities and assisting the residents in these living conditions, HOPE CDC is able to make a substantial positive impact on the sustainable health of Kansans over generations.

As a nonprofit organization, HOPE CDC is funded completely by grants and donations whose funding needs have only increased as a result of COVID-19. Financial assistance will allow HOPE CDC to continue providing the access and needed resources for the imminently homeless and other low-to-modern income Wichita families in need of healthier living conditions and affordable housing.
