Our mission is to declare H.O.P.E. for the heart of our communities!
Where by “H.O.P.E.” we mean:
H – Health focused alternatives: immunizations and physicals for youth as they get ready for going back to school.
O – Opportunities for the future: for the adults, we have services in the areas of Employment, Housing, Immigration, Insurance, and Education.
P – Power of Prayer: for families to learn how to live life in the light of Christ.
E – Educational Readiness: providing a new backpack and school supplies along with a fresh haircut!
All services, in addition to the wonderful FEST Kidzone with bouncy houses and carnival games are FREE OF CHARGE and open to the public!
HopeFest is a non-profit 501c3 organization that was founded by New Life Covenant Church in Humboldt Park. Since its inception HopeFest has worked to provide for children from all across the city of Chicago to ensure they are well equipped to succeed in the new school year.

Our desire is to not only remind our community that there is hope for the future, but to also equip them with the tools necessary to take the first step towards their goals.
