Our Team

Founder and President

Richard Mabe

Coach Rick has been touched by the pure love of God and the omnipotent power of Creation with a message of HOPE. His experiences, both professionally and personally, have earned him the tools necessary to write his books, set up The Hope Institute and with his team, guide you on a journey of self-discovery and community development. 


Melanie Paul

Having a professional numbers person is vital to the success of the organization. Melanie is that and has her years of experience in leading non-profit organizations.  She has stepped up to the plate and is a welcome addition to the HOPE Family. 

Community Collaboration Consultant

Sheyenne Kreamer

We have found that there are a number of small businesses that would love the opportunity to hire our students to do telemarketing and online marketing. This will allow the program to not only be self-sustaining by providing services to the community, but will allow the participants to start to see themselves and their value in a new light.



The board seat for the fundraiser is a key role and we are currently working to fill this role on the board. In order to fill this seat the applicant should be prepared to contribute 10 hours per week reaching out to granting organizations, businesses, and philanthropists to begin building relationships, scheduling events and bringing in much needed funds for projects and operations. Depending on the level of participation this can be a compensated position.

Training Director


We are seeking a well rounded educational professional to help design and build the educational platform for business arts and trades. The H.O.P.E. formula is a key component of the success for each practitioner in the community as well as the attendees.
