About Us

Building Hope in the City (BHITC) is a Christian mission organization focused on the renewal of urban Cleveland. It uniquely links local congregations and volunteers with the many people it serves to foster relationships and spur personal and community transformation. Programs and initiatives include building the capacity of faith leaders, community development and affordable housing, refugee and immigrant integration and social enterprise business ventures seek to make the hope of the Gospel tangible across our city.

Formed in August 2003, Building Hope in the City is congregation-birthed and oriented in response to needs and opportunities throughout the city.  Since its creation, it has served as a ‘research and development arm’ for the Church. 

Building Hope in the City is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization.
