HopeLine Resource Center for Community Development Charity Profile
The HopeLine, as most people know us, has been serving the needs of the primarily Hispanic immigrant community in the South Bronx since 1990. What began as a bilingual telephone counseling and referral service by the Vicariate of the South Bronx, the HopeLine today has evolved into a full service outreach organization under the direction of its new chairman, Bishop Josu Iriondo.
The HopeLine's overriding mission is to help first-generation Hispanic immigrants to become self-reliant and upwardly mobile. We seek above all to help people help themselves by connecting them to a better life. Our holistic approach to mind, body and spirit is at the core of our mission. We believe that addressing the total needs of an individual is the best way to accomplish our mission of self-reliance. We do this through English-as-a-Second Language courses, Basic Education in Native Language, Home Attendant Courses, Security Guard training, Computer Literacy courses and Citizenship workshops , as well as other educational programs.
