About Operation HOPE, Chicago Uplift 2020

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.

In Chicago, we have partnered with the City Treasurer on Chicago Uplift 2020 – a joint initiative to bring financial inclusion to 20 of Chicago’s most underserved neighborhoods, including Austin, Lawndale, Near West Side, Pullman, Bronzeville, Englewood, Humboldt Park, Garfield Park, and more.
