Hope Renovations Chosen for Catalyst Program


Hope Renovations joins a highly selective community of nonprofits working to break the cycle of poverty

CARRBORO, N.C. (January 11, 2022) – Hope Renovations is proud to announce it has been selected to participate in Stand Together Foundation’s Catalyst Program, a management training and peer-learning program to help nonprofits grow, scale, and replicate their success. Hope Renovations is one of 14 nonprofits chosen to join the growing community of over 220 organizations across all 50 states, transforming the lives of more than one million Americans through bottom-up empowerment.

Hope Renovations was selected among hundreds of nonprofit organizations through an extensive vetting process and accepted into the program after a rigorous evaluation. Nonprofits joining Stand Together Foundation’s Catalyst Program are recognized for disrupting the status quo, demonstrating “outside-the-box” thinking, and embracing community-driven and people-centered approaches. Program criteria also include proven outcomes and the potential for scale and cultural impact.

“This group of 14 leaders represents incredible innovation in the nonprofit sector,” said Evan Feinberg, executive director, Stand Together Foundation. “They are already challenging status quo approaches and helping individuals transform their lives in their communities. Together, we hope to deepen their impact both in their communities and across the country.”

“We are thrilled to receive this funding from Stand Together Foundation, and we are fortunate to count ourselves among other incredible organizations as a part of the 15th Cohort,” says Hope Renovations CEO and Founder, Nora Spencer. “The Catalyst Program will further our efforts to uplift underemployed women, low-income older adults and the communities they reside in. We are so grateful for the opportunity to have Stand Together by our side as we keep building futures and transforming lives.”

The Catalyst Program is a six-month management and peer-learning training program. The experience will equip Hope Renovations’ leaders with new tools and approaches to deepen its impact and expand its reach. The program serves as an on-ramp to long-term partnership with Stand Together Foundation, including principles-based management coaching, leadership development, operational support, and access to a community of entrepreneurial peers, influential philanthropists, and business leaders.

Hope Renovations will join 13 other social entrepreneur-led organizations in its cohort experience which officially kicks off on March 22, 2022.
