Hope is a sure confidence that resides within. It does not exist in limbo, nor does it wait for miraculous intervention‚Äč, rather it is the confident expectation that if one works diligently, following God's lead, what we are working towards eventually materializes. Hope is the anchor that keeps us grounded even after multiple failed attempts and the single driving force that says, "Yes" when the world says, "No."

-Stachelle Bussey, Founder and Executive Director

Our Mission

Hope Reimagined

The Hope Buss is a 501(c)(3) organization that works to bridge the gap between local organizations and the community by attacking hopelessness at its core in a myriad of ways. The Hope Buss strives to connect local organizations to the crisis in the community, create sustainable resources, and invigorate hope and strength into the people. Understanding that needs will vary by each neighborhood, we work to assess the needs of residents and become partners with churches and community organizations to meet those needs. At the Hope Buss, we strive to turn the needs of the community into strengths, believing that the work we begin will result in sustainable resources from which the community can eventually thrive with the ultimate goal of alleviating poverty. To date, The Hope Buss has hosted grocery store runs, health fairs, community conversations on mental health, mental health conferences, free farmer's markets and school supplies giveaways.
