HOPE Innovation Network

The HOPE Innovation Network (HIN) consists of organizations across sectors who are implementing the HOPE framework. HIN members identify, pilot, and disseminate practices that advance the use of the HOPE framework based on effective efforts in existing programs. Through HIN, we learn and grow based on the experiences of effective programs and initiatives. Members of the network demonstrate how HOPE-informed care engages direct service providers, families, and communities in new ways that achieve better health outcomes and advance equity.

National Advisory Board

HOPE’s National Advisory Board (NAB) is a group of passionate and diverse leaders who are committed to spreading HOPE. NAB members are highly-regarded and experts from higher education, medicine, advocacy, research, families, and non-profits. Yet, they all share a common purpose of expanding access to positive childhood experiences to children and youth of all backgrounds through ongoing, collaborative partnerships between providers and families. NAB members offer their support and guidance through recommendations and thoughtful discussion about the goals, priorities, mission, and values of HOPE.

Family and Community Experts Council (FACEs)

Family and Community Experts Council (FACEs) is a group of parents, youth, and other family and community members who share a common purpose of expanding access to positive childhood experiences (PCEs) for families of all backgrounds through the ongoing, collaborative partnerships between providers and families that HOPE promotes. FACEs serves in an advisory capacity, similar to the advisory role of the National Advisory Board, and their recommendations are valued. The goal of meetings is to ensure that every Council member voices his/her/their perspective.
