Where there is a need, there is HOPE!


Since 1992, HOPE CHARITABLE SERVICES has developed a history of helping the poor both through its international ministry and local engagement with the inner city community of Portsmouth, Virginia.


Our vision is to change the fabric of our inner city and the world beyond, one person at a time.

Our mission is to develop a mission-guided community and the resources to transform our inner city. We do this by caring for at-risk children and adults, strengthening struggling families in Portsmouth and supporting those who seek to do the same in developing war torn nations.

This is accomplished through our Five Fold Approach:



Since 1992, HOPE CHARITABLE SERVICES (HOPE) has developed a solid history of helping the poor, both through local engagement with our inner city community of Portsmouth,VA, regionally and internationally.  In 2016 we merged with Helping Hands Ministry to consolidate our efforts and do greater things for those affected by poverty and disaster.  HOPE is registered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as Helping Hands Inc.
