Together for Hope is Transforming Rural America: Together for Hope is a rural development coalition engaging the 339 counties of persistent rural poverty in America, divided into five regions: Appalachia, Delta, Black Belt, Rio Grande Valley, and Native Lands. We believe asset-based community development is the best first step in fighting poverty in rural space. To that end, we work with communities in order to hear their dreams and begin to take steps toward those visions. Within these communities, Together for Hope holistically fights poverty focusing on four priorities of hope: Education, Health & Nutrition, Housing & Environment, and Social Enterprise.
