ABOUT US

Turning Interest Into Action

 

Mission Statement:

Provide IT Educational services to underserved communities while providing dire needed mentoring services that will champion and enhance successful outcomes for inner city youth.

Guiding Principles:

We are a registered 501c3 Nonprofit entity whose core focus is helping drive economic opportunity, healthcare initiatives and racial equality with an emphasis on creating opportunity for people and communities of color.

Proof of Hope is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization, based in the state of Texas with extensions in the Louisiana and surrounding areas. Our mission is to provide IT educational services to under served communities while also providing mentoring services that will champion and enhance successful outcomes for inner city youth. This includes, but is not limited to weekly engagement with youth ages 8-18, at community centers, schools, and eventually in our own outreach center.

Proof of Hope provides more than hope. We provide technical skills training in the IT educational arena that can lead directly to future career opportunities and assist youth from lower income homes in attaining skills they may otherwise not be able to acquire without proper mentoring. We look to be part of the positive pipeline that will work hand in hand with colleges and universities that provide opportunities for youth in competing IT academic departments and in tandem with our local and national leaders who can help close the divide between youth who come from under served populations or communities but have the intellect to excel in the IT field and those who have everything they need.

Some of the activities include:

  • Virtual Classroom learning modules which includes STEAM, Cyber Security, Computer Coding.

  • PELS-STRONG College scholarships provided to the Homer High School Class of 2020.

  • Provide front line VA Nurses lunches, community response to COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Computer Network installation and setup services for families to access online learning course work.

  • C.W. Outreach Center Homer, La. Homeless Nutrition kitchen (In Kind Donations)

    Proof of Hope can be found online at www.proofofhope.org. We are here to be Servant Leaders. HOPE is not Quarantined.
