Donna Badgett Hurley established H.O.P.E. (Housing Options ; Planning Enterprises, Inc.) to foster selfsufficiency, help build financial wealth through homeownership and help the community find, maintain and keep the housing that meets their needs. As a realtor of more than 15 years, Donna has seen many buyers obtaining loans that were not in their best interest, not understanding the loan process and relying completely on the professionals (realtor and lenders) to navigate them through the process. Donna saw this as a problem and the need for more fulltime housing counseling agencies in Prince Georges County which lead to the development of H.O.P.E. Our mission is to ensure equal access to housing for low and moderateincome persons and households through counseling, education and advocacy.
