Hope . . . What we do!

Our Mission

“HFO is actively empowering a movement of hope—focused on community development through educational support, neighborhood outreach, and intentional relationships—grounded in the truth that love changes everything.”

Our Hope

Hope for Opelousas is a non-profit outreach organization rooted in the belief that God loves Opelousas and that His love changes everything. Through youth enrichment programming, battling poverty and its results, and providing opportunities for people to serve one another, we work to provide resources and support to our impoverished city. It is our belief that God has gone before us, and by engaging a whole community we can work towards restoration.

HFO is run entirely with donor funds and is supported by local volunteers from varying backgrounds; we are an incorporated, 501c-3 approved, nonprofit organization.


~ “The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. Above all, keep lovin one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.  Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.  As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” ~ 1 Peter 4:7-11
