Faith-Based Partner Communities

JustHope supports and nurtures several styles of partnership. Each style has its own level of commitment and type of participation; but all of them begin with the recognition that although one’s partner may not be an “equal” in wealth, power, or access to opportunity, or may not be an “equal” in spiritual depth or the capacity for hope, they are of equal value and have equal rights to dignity, respect, and human flourishing.
