About   (request update)
President and Founder of
Hope Elliott has over 20 years experience in educational and non-profit program development. She has held positions at Boston University, Howard University and Johns Hopkins University in Admissions and Financial Aid, and as Director of the Upward Bound Program at Norwalk Community College. She also served as the Executive Director of Horizons Academic Enrichment Program, and Coordinator of Child First Extended Learning Program. Most recently, Ms. Elliott served as the Grants Administrator for the YMCA of Central MD, The Central Florida Urban League, and the Historic Town of Eatonville, FL. Over this period of time, Hope had to prepare several funding proposals in order to sustain these organizations.
In 1994, Hope expanded her grant writing experience when a friend asked her for help to prepare a funding application for HUD – the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. It was through this experience that Hope realized the need for grant writers, and the wide array of grants that could be written. That was the birth of Grants by Write Stuff, which was officially changed to Hope Granted, LLC in 2010. Since 1992, Hope has prepared over 400 grant applications and secured over $6.2 million dollars for non-profit organizations. The mission of these organizations range from:
• Education, health and youth development;
• community development block grants;
• veteran programs;
• programs for autism, disabled workers;
• drug and alcohol recovery centers;
• flood and disaster mitigation,
• housing rehabilitation for elderly and disabled victims of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Charlie.

Hope holds an M.Ed. degree in Education Administration from Howard University of Washington, DC; and a B.A. in English and Africana Studies from Brown University of Providence, RI. She has recently added grant writing seminars to her repertoire of teaching, which has included computer literacy, financial literacy, first-time homebuyers and life skills. Hope is the proud mother of three young adults, Lance, Micaela and Stephen.

Our history has to be written, rewritten and illustrated from our perspective. There is a big world market out there that needs access to a new truth. This will not happen if it is left up to the prejudiced, mind-controlling, self-interest for profit entities. I believe the way to reach the dysfunctional and the disenchanted youth is by having their younger siblings be their mentors showing them that they themselves should and could be doing better. From my experiences as an educator, to inspire and to encourage reading, I feel that the best way to address the literacy issues with our children today, especially with all of their distractions, is through illustration.    Students writing, illustrating and reading theirs and other students' writings may encourage and inspire others to begin reading, much like how when they go home with a cold infecting everyone in the house.   Children's book: So I told A Lie!

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
