What is H.O.P.E.?

H.O.P.E. is an acronym for Help Other People Excel which is the foundation of the Social Services Committee for the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States. Under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Youssef, the Social Services Committee was established to serve those in need. Through the Grace of God and the kindness of your hearts, H.O.P.E. has been able to serve those in need all around the world. There are many different categories of H.O.P.E.’s service, which you can browse on this website.

We take pride in the fact that all of our services are performed by volunteers with none of the donations being used for administration. There are many service and volunteering opportunities available with H.O.P.E. If interested in helping please contact us at: hope@suscopts.org

“Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.”
– Acts 4:34-35
