Together for Hope

Launched in 2001, Together for Hope (TFH) is the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship’s (CBF) long-term commitment to working with people in 20 of the nation’s poorest counties in order to affect change and break the cycle of economic disparity. The ministry is about establishing long-term relationships, listening, learning, and walking alongside local leaders. The hope is that communities will be transformed, as well as the churches and individuals who serve. Books for the Border is one strategy of the Together for Hope rural poverty initiative.
