Operation HOPE Seeks Economic Triage Volunteers for Hurricane Victims

Operation HOPE Inc.'s HOPE Coalition America provides financial and economic guidance and assistance to individuals affected by disasters. The coalition is a collaboration of:

  • professionals from the banking, financial services and insurance industries;
  • higher education professionals; and
  • social and community services agencies.

HOPE Coalition America has activated Project Restore HOPE to assist recent hurricane victims with the short-, medium- and long-term economic and financial challenges they will face in the weeks and months ahead.

  • Emergency budget counseling.
  • Emergency credit management.
  • Assistance with deferring mortgage payments.
  • Assistance with working with creditors.
  • Referrals to government and private agencies.
  • Assistance with obtaining copies of destroyed financial documents.
