It's all about HOPE for their future and ours!

Harnessing Opportunity and Power of Education, Inc. is a nonprofit charity recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3)

Our mission to to close the gap in education by working with and through other non-profits, institutions, charter, private, and public schools by providing motivational and inspirational outreach programs to students. Exposing children to significant cultural events and outreach programs, while focusing on the hearts and will of the children more than the GPA or IQ. Serving ALL children, especially the disadvantaged, underserved, or disabled.

Founder Lila F. Davidson had a vision of how to work together with leaders, other organizations and all the local citizens, by harnessing oppportunity and power of education for students, combined with providing cultural events for the community at large.  By partnering with other organizations and working collaboratively, we can fill the gap in education.  Supporting Arts in Education for students and appreciation of the arts by the community are interdependent. 


HOPE has become an implementation of helping those in need and further equipping them with experiential education.  Inspiring the desire and will to learn is as important as content of education and is necessary to continue growth, development, self-confidence, and a sense of importance and belonging in their community.


With your support of one child, these programs will benefit 1,000's of students every year.

 Knowledge is power.  

Share it.

Wisdom is more precious than silver and gold.  

Seek it.

 Harnessing Opportunity and Power of Education is HOPE! 

Give it.
