In the midst of devastation lives the uncertainty of what comes next. For individuals, families, and businesses, either directly or indirectly affected by the Coronavirus, the financial impact of the occurrence, especially for people in underserved communities, is extensive.
Faced with the ﬁnancial reality of job loss, business interruption, credit issues, and debt, affected Americans need the support of HOPE Inside Disaster, formerly known as HOPE Coalition America (HCA), HOPE's division for disaster preparedness and recovery.
On, March 13, 2020, Coronavirus was officially declared a U.S. national emergency.
At some point, we believe every American will begin to experience some level of economic stress as a result of Coronavirus.
HOPE Inside Disaster is the only ﬁnancial emergency preparedness and recovery service in the country, created following the tragic events of 9/11. In partnership with FEMA, Operation HOPE pioneered the new federal policy space of emergency disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
Through partnerships with the American Red Cross, FEMA, and industry leaders, our teams deploy in response to federally-declared disasters to serve as a ﬁnancial advocate for local residents and small business owners.
STANDING WITH AMERICANS
Operation HOPE is a for-purpose organization working to disrupt poverty and empower inclusion for low and moderate-income youth and adults.
Our focus is ﬁnancial dignity and inclusion. We equip young people and adults with the ﬁnancial tools and education to secure a better future—coaching them through their personal aspirations and life’s challenges, and facilitating their journey to ﬁnancial independence.
Since 1992, we have been moving America from civil rights to “silver rights” with the mission of making free enterprise and capitalism work for the underserved.
Our robust HOPE Inside national network, with 150 physical locations in 20+ states plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico and serving an additional 22 states through our call center and remote coaching, is the only government endorsed national financial coaching network for working class communities and Americans in the U.S.

SERVING UP HOPE
Operation HOPE leverages the career experience and personal knowledge of virtual volunteers, many of whom work in, or are retired from the financial services industry.
If you are seeking a rewarding way to contribute to the recovery from COVID-19, consider joining HOPE as a virtual volunteer. You will be trained to provide basic support to those Americans financially impacted by the crisis.
We can only do this with your support, so we encourage you to register below to learn more about how you can become a part of the Operation HOPE team!
Operation HOPE, through the support of government, community and private sector partners, has been helping Americans prepare and recover from disasters, since the founding of HOPE Coalition America, following 9/11.
With the escalation of event cancellations, school closures, and loss of income, HOPE is here to support companies, communities and individuals navigate the economic challenges facing their clients, residents and loved ones.
