Hopeful Cities™, an iFred.org project, was created based on research that suggests that hope is a teachable skill. It launched the first-ever Hopeful City of Reno, Nevada. It was created as a marketing plan in action that operationalizes hope as it creates awareness about its importance.
Hopeful Cities is a website full of resources any city can implement and aims to equip the “how-to” of hope wherever it is needed: in the workplace, community, schools, and at home.
