Hope in Loudoun County

“The challenge these days, is to be somewhere, to belong to some particular place, invest oneself in it, draw strength and courage from it, to dwell in a community.”
– Bell Hooks

In August of last year, we packed up for Loudoun County, Virginia to film with Google! We collaborated with an incredible production team to create a documentary about the work that Google supports with grants, volunteer efforts, and mentorship.

We spent time learning about the inspiring folks at Mobile Hope (mobile-hope.org/) and Global Inheritance (https://www.globalinheritance.net/). Check out what these organizations are doing in Loudoun County.
