We Are Charleston Hope
we ARE DEDICATED TO empowerING students & teachers in Title 1 schools through these core values:
We are committed to working with our local educators to create meaningful and sustainable support, not for them.
We create programs and events that work to close the opportunity and achievement gaps found in our local Title 1 schools.
We connect teachers and students to relationships, resources, and opportunities that center on building relationships.
Schools we serve:
Charleston Progressive Academy
Mary Ford Elementary
St. James Santee Elementary
North Charleston Elementary

What inspired our mission
“People who really want to make a difference in the world usually do it, in one way or another. And I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world."
