Testimonials

We’re proud of the work that we do in the communities that we serve. See what others have to say about our work below:

DeMarco Management Corp.

HOPE has shown that it is possible to build local support for high quality affordable housing, but to succeed, the process has to be locally-driven. In the coming years, we hope to take our success in Old Saybrook and initiate similar efforts in neighboring towns throughout the shoreline.

Linda Drohan

After my husband died, I lost just about everything. Because of HOPE, I was able to purchase a beautiful condo and have a home again. I couldn’t be more thankful.

Former HOPE President Tony Lyons

HOPE has shown that it is possible to build local support for high quality affordable housing, but to succeed, the process has to be locally-driven. In the coming years, we hope to take our success in Old Saybrook and initiate similar efforts in neighboring towns throughout the shoreline.

Everybody had different motivations, but the community really came together to form a consensus on the need to address the housing problem. It was never about change. It really came down to preserving a way of life and keeping Old Saybrook the way it’s always been: a community that is welcoming and willing to help its neighbors in need. (about Ferry Crossing)

Mike Pace, Former First Selectman, Old Saybrook, CT

The importance of this housing to me was that it attended to issues that every small town was facing: kids who grew up in town but couldn’t afford to live here; volunteer firefighters of middle income who might not be able to afford to live here; single moms with children going to our schools. I wanted them to have a home they could afford that looked like it belonged in the community. We needed to help people help themselves. (about Ferry Crossing)

Atty. David Royston

All of the Boards and Commissions involved did their jobs. They saw this project as being in the best interests of Old Saybrook. Their goal coincided with HOPE’s. Do it right. (about Ferry Crossing)

David Fink, Policy Director, Partnership for Strong Communities

HOPE is a trailblazer and they have been that way for three or four years leading up to Ferry Crossing because they’ve done this exactly the way the HOME Connecticut statute was envisioned, which is to have every one in town involved.
