Hope Impact Partnerships & Programming: Strengthening Ecosystems of Support for Student Basic Needs

2022-2023 Impact Report

May 2024

During the 2022—2023 academic year, The Hope Center partnered with 126 colleges—collectively serving nearly 2 million students—to enhance capacity for providing comprehensive services that secure students’ basic needs and improve student success. As part of Hope Impact Partnerships (HIP), partners fielded the Hope Center Basic Needs Survey, accessed asynchronous learning content, participated in learning sessions, received 1:1 coaching, shared resources with their cohort, and engaged in action planning to advance basic needs systems, services, and impact on their campus. We are delighted to share this report reflecting on our first year of activities, impact, key findings, and lessons learned.

And in Texas specifically, we recently wrapped up two years of providing training and technical assistance on basic needs and mental health to 75 Texas colleges by convening organizations collecting data on and providing technical assistance to Texas colleges focused on basic needs, mental health, and emergency aid. Read more in our Texas-focused Impact Report and learn more about our convening here.
