H.O.P.E. of Southern Maryland

Since its founding in 1985, H.O.P.E. (Helpers Overcoming Problems Effectively) has been serving St. Mary’s County residents by bridging the gap between local congregations and those in need. We are a non-denominational organization guided by a volunteer Board of Directors   working in partnership with over 20 churches and numerous community service groups. We have become a United Way organization with direct donations recognized as tax deductible by the I.R.S.  With a track record of sound fiscal operation we are proud to say that eighty-five percent of financial donations go directly to those in need.
