A Trustworthy Organization
At HOPE South Florida, stewardship and transparency is an integral part of everything we do — because we recognize that every resource entrusted to us can help transform lives and communities.
As part of our stewardship, we optimize resources and distribute them where they are needed most. We carefully monitor and review programs costs and effectiveness, use donations and grants for their intended purposes, and look for ways to collaborate and leverage funds for maximum impact.
In addition, we continually strive to keep our overhead rate low. Annually, over 85 percent of our total operating expenses are used for direct services and programs that benefit single mothers in crisis and homeless individuals and veterans.
Our effectiveness has earned the trust and support of hundreds of donors, churches, corporations, institutions, and government agencies.

Guidestar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations, has awarded us the Gold seal of transparency. While many organizations function at an operational rate of around 20% of funds raised, we are extremely proud to share that our operational rate is at 13.7%. This translates to more funding directly to our programs and services.
