HopeSprings awakens, equips through training, and engages the faith community to serve HIV+ brothers, sisters, and friends, providing hope and healing through the power of relationships. Our trained volunteers are people just like you, serving because they have been called to be a part of generation restoring all people back into community. We provide programming and services to HIV clinics and community based organizations utilizing volunteers from faith communities.

“We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest.”

– Bishop Oscar Romero


HopeSprings will holistically restore hope and healing to those affected by HIV, health disparities and associated stigma.

HopeSprings builds human resource capacity to:

  • Raise awareness of HIV and social determinants of health
  • Equip those God has called to serve in promoting health and equity regionally and nationally
  • Partner with community organizations providing avenues of engagement


  • Christian principles by showing the love of Christ, grace, compassion, mercy, justice, humility and faith in action through our staff and volunteers.
  • People where they are, as they are and unconditionally love them.
  • Outcomes based research, teaching and education to strengthen our outreach initiatives.
  • Empowerment and equipping the local faith community to assist those in their community with HIV, health disparities and associated stigma.
  • Partnerships with groups who share and institute activities of mutual purpose.

We extend our service offerings to all lives regardless of race, ethnicity and national origins, gender and gender identity, sexuality, socio-economic class, age, religion and disability.

In October 2006 two churches just outside Baltimore City were awakened to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Central Presbyterian and Grace Fellowship Church recognized that this issue was far too large for any one church to address on its own. They agreed to put aside denominational differences and join hands to respond, forming a ministry called HopeSprings with the vision to awaken, equip and engage the faith community to restore hope and healing to those impacted by HIV/AIDS.

Our efforts began slowly with just a few volunteers and two churches but have steadily grown over time. Today we have seven thousand volunteers from hundreds of faith communities who have been equipped through our training and are serving through our programming on a regular basis to meet the needs of our HIV/AIDS service provider partners in Baltimore and beyond. We have provided relationships that have brought hope and healing to well over 10,000 people throughout the city of Baltimore and beyond.

In the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson Metropolitan Region is 10th in the nation for an HIV diagnosis and 4th in the nation for people living with HIV.  1 in 41 people in Baltimore City are HIV positive.

HIV is both preventable and treatable.  The faith community has an important and powerful role to play.

We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God.  We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe in the deity of our Lord and only Savior Jesus Christ, in the necessity of His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to Heaven, and in His personal return in power and glory.
