Build Hope for the Future

Our Strategic Plan

Since 1995, Hope Springs Institute has set its heart to nurture the deep and meaningful growth of its community and family. We have grown in size, scope, and wisdom. We survived recessions, fire, and a multi-year pandemic. As an organization, we have become stronger through these adversities, and also clearer about our future.  We are:

Rooted. Resilient. Ready.

Our Strategic Focus

Plans for Building Hope

Grow the Environment

This commitment recognizes that the demand for sacred space and transformative work continues to grow. We feel it is imperative to practice this work with a lighter environmental impact and continue to create a more immersive learning landscape for all visitors on our land.

Steward the Land

This commitment honors land as sacred teacher and the value of all its natural parts. From closing our food source loop, to practicing regenerative design in our leadership model, or launching the Legacy Grove initiative, this commitment is all about walking the walk with sacred intention.

Nurture Community

This commitment centers on community-building which has three main components: a sense of belonging, a commitment, and fulfilling individual needs while engaging in activities that build community. We know that change doesn't exist without its circle of impact and calling in our circle is imperative to our future success.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. 

In fact, it's the only thing that ever has."
