Get to Know Charities: Hope of the City

Hope of the City (Hope) works with volunteers to provide services to the community in Sham Shui Po ranging from English lessons for mothers while their children are at school, to tutoring for their school-going children, excursions and outings, to visits to elderly living by themselves.   Hope operates out of its centre in the district, welcoming and collaborating with other nonprofit organisations who have need of a space in which to deliver their own services to users who live in the area.

Due to Covid’s social distancing and gathering restrictions, Hope adapted its services to engage more intimately with smaller groups of its service users and, by doing so, was able to get to know them better.   In the new year, Hope will focus on working more closely with the disadvantaged youth in the district to better serve their needs in terms of skills development and mental health care.
