    About HopeWorks

    The mission of HopeWorks is to support and advocate for people in Howard County affected by sexual and intimate partner violence and engage the community in creating the change required for violence prevention.


    HopeWorks envisions a world of interconnected people and communities actively working toward a society where all people are safe and valued and where everyone can reach their full potential.


    We acknowledge that creating this vision requires long-term strategies that address the root causes of sexual and intimate partner violence. This means that HopeWorks’ staff, board and volunteers are invested and engaged in altering the systems and imbalances of power that maintain the status quo - including racism, poverty, and gendered violence.


    At HopeWorks, we use the arts in three important ways to accomplish our mission: to support survivors in their healing; as a vehicle to increase awareness; and to imagine solutions to bring about social change.


    We invite you to audition for HopeWorks’ social justice theatre production, “Telling This Truth.”


    This event is made possible by the Howard County Arts Council through a grant from Howard County Government
