Past Summits



We were absolutely delighted to have Wendy Ellis, Assistant Professor and Director of the Center for Community Resilience at George Washington University, be our Keynote speaker. Her work Building Resilient Communities shows how communities can work together to create opportunities for positive childhood experiences.

We offered diverse workshops in our afternoon sessions that taught attendees how to grow HOPE within their organizations and sector specific work. There were many opportunities for networking throughout the day with speakers and other attendees. For those who attended this years Summit, we will be hosting more networking events on the platform within the coming months!

Spreading HOPE Virtual Summit

April 9, 2021

On April 9, 2021, the HOPE National Resource Center hosted our first annual summit. The theme in 2021 was Spreading HOPE, and among rich discussions on HOPE in various sectors, we celebrated the growing recognition of our work around the country. Over three hundred people participated from across the U.S. and five other countries, from the health, education, child welfare, and public health sectors, including front-line providers and senior executives.

Rev. Darrell Armstrong provided a powerful keynote address. Using his own life story as an example, Rev. Armstrong described how childhood adversity can be overcome; we are capable of healing even after severe trauma. Rev. Armstrong discussed how he uses HOPE to guide pre-baptismal counseling for his congregants, and how he has trained other clergy members who now add the principles of brain science to their deep spiritual tradition and connections. The recording is available below.
