American Hope Charities is a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) nonprofit Corporation established in 2005. We are a research-based educational organization founded on the principle that education is essential for empowerment and freedom.
That principle is the reason we work to make financial literacy materials and education easily available to U.S., high school, and college students. The United States is the wealthiest country in the world, yet, study after study shows that Americans aren’t financially literate. The Federal Reserve in March 2016 shows the student debt in the U.S. has increased from $0.52 trillion in 2006 to $1.52 trillion in 2016.
In addition, we provide strategic planning and decision-making advisory services to U.S., licensed health care professionals and small business entrepreneurs. We also work to provide these services specifically to women-owned businesses in keeping with our commitment to gender equality.
As the U.S. population ages and demographics change, the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis estimates that demands for healthcare services will increase five-fold, while the healthcare supply of licensed professionals is at its lowest in 25 years.
Strategic planning and decision making is a formal discipline based on research that results in guiding professionals and business owners to understanding the profession, or business of their choice; measuring the market supply and demand and determining the probabilities and costs of success; and documenting in a three-year business plan specific courses of action and anticipating contingencies. Underemployment and business failures are the results of lack of business planning, poor decision-making, and financial illiteracy.
American Hope Charities is committed to fostering strategic leadership in action based on the universal values of truth, integrity, equality, governance, and transparency.
