American Hope believes that a key to reinvigorating the American Spirit is by actively publicizing the good that countless Americans are doing across our country. To help bring these individuals into the limelight, American Hope has established the Spirit of Hope Award. As part of our Virtue Initiative, this quarterly award seeks to recognize ordinary Americans for their acts of character, compassion, and service. In Q2, 2002, Matthew Okebiyi, Founder and Executive Director of the African American Planning Commission, Inc., received the Spirit of Hope Award.
