Making Change Possible

Here at Hope 4Youth (H4Y) we are driven to do our part in making the world a better place. We strive to stimulate independence and hope for a future to foster care youth and those aging out from services.  We will provide training to develop and increase their knowledge base and skills related to health & wellness, advocating, financial management, nutrition, career exploration, housing, and social connections.

Our mission is to empower men, women, children, and youth to live up to their full potential


Comfort Tina Addo is the CEO and heart of Hope4Youth.  She and her team have a passion for working with children in the foster care system and a strong desire to help improve the lives of vulnerable children who have experienced trauma. 


Comfort journeyed to the United States 36 years ago from Sierra Leone and had to leave her own son behind when he was only 4 years old. She was later reunited with him after he became a refugee during the Sierra Leone Civil War.  Her story is built on strong faith, determination, persistence, perseverance, and commitment. She worked meticulously and holds a Master's Degree in Social Work; a License in Master's Social Work and is currently a Social Worker Case Manager at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
