Project HOPE

The mission of Humanitarian Outreach and Philanthropic Engagement (HOPE) is to partner with parishes in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago (“Metropolis”) and with local networks to help provide food security and stable housing to those in need.


The beneficiaries of HOPE’s efforts are children, families and individuals living within the parishes of our Metropolis as well as members of our community who are striving to achieve food security and stable housing. HOPE maintains the anonymity of all beneficiaries and does not share information about its beneficiaries without their prior consent.


Since March 2020, Project HOPE has partnered with Chicago-based parishes and local networks to provide food security and emergency shelter to those in need. To date, with God’s blessings, HOPE has served over 1,400,000 meals to individuals and families, provided 3,000 nights to people in need of shelter through our partnership with Northside Housing and Supportive Services, and distributed over 12,500 CARE and COVID Kits.

Project HOPE volunteers have a unique opportunity to meet, engage, and serve low-income senior citizens in Chicago. Through a partnership with the Hellenic Foundation, volunteers have been organizing and delivering nutritious, shelf stable meal bags to low-income senior citizens throughout 2024. 

Project HOPE has been generously supported by the Hellenic Foundation Chicago and other donors. We thank them for their support!
