1Title:  Housing Our People Economically, Inc. Records     
 Creator:  Housing Our People Economically, Inc. 
 Dates:  1965-1979 
 Abstract:  Housing Our People Economically, Inc., was a non-profit organization founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1965 to rehabilitate existing houses and build new ones for residents of Cleveland's Hough neighborhood. It depended on government and foundation grants for much of its support, and, by the mid-1970s, owned and managed over 250 units of housing. The group floundered in 1984 after reports of corruption and poor management made it difficult to obtain adequate funding. The group was known as HOPE. The collection consists of correspondence, memoranda, press releases, proposals, reports, information about property holdings, a subject file, blueprints, and newspaper clippings.
