Where We Work

Nationwide Reach, Local Depth

Building Hope has worked with charter schools in all parts of the country. While their challenges tend to be similar, geographic context matters. Our approach depends on having boots on the ground: locally based experts who add value to a school’s own team.

Our Regions


Growing outward from our roots in Washington, DC, our support and advocacy for charter schools has demonstrated possibilities in some of the country’s most contentious public education systems.

Western Region

A movement to expand families’ options for public education is underway. Particularly through our work in Idaho and Nevada, Building Hope is at the leading edge of this expansion of public school options.

Southeast Region

In Florida, Building Hope and our partners have helped transform the public education system into a national model for school reform. That work is an anchor that has extended our reputation into the southeastern US.

Southwest Region

The Southwest is seeing some of the charter school movement’s greatest growth, both in cities and in more remote localities. Building Hope helps increase the school options for families in a variety of communities.
