Mission Statement info

A RAY OF HOPE SHALL PROVIDE A SAFE HARBOR FOR THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY WITH NOWHERE ELSE TO TURN. IT WILL PROVIDE THOSE WHO SEEK HELP NOT ONLY WITH FOOD, CLOTHING AND SHELTER; BUT WITH KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO DEVELOP COMPETENCY IN OVERCOMING LIFE’S CHALLENGES. A RAY OF HOPE WILL OFFER A “HAND UP” RATHER THAN A “HAND OUT” IN THE AREAS OF PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, FINANCIAL, FAMILIAL, AND LEGAL REHABILITATION WITH THE GOAL OF PROMOTING SELF-SUFFICIENCY.

What does it mean for a nonprofit to be CRA aligned?
Each nonprofit on Community Qualifier has been reviewed by findCRA utilizing a dual evaluation process. Nonprofits are first evaluated by our proprietary algorithm, CRANIA, and then further validated by our CRA experts. When nonprofit passes both parts of this review, we create a nonprofit profile for them on Community Qualifier. From there, a nonprofit can claim their profile and add additional information including their programs & services, counties served, targeted clients and income groups and more.
