RestoreHope Consulting

Jeremy White is the Founder and President of RestoreHope Consulting, which was created to address the on-going organizational needs of community helpers and healers and in so doing to restore some of the hope that has been lost in communities around the country. It provides guidance in strategic planning, grant-writing and fundraising, marketing and government relations. Services also include trainings, workshops and other motivational speaking engagements.

For nearly three years, Mr. White was the Special Assistant for Faith-based Policy Outreach/Associate Director for Outreach for the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. In this capacity, Mr. White served as the architect for the Bush Administration’s outreach efforts aimed at developing partnerships between faith-based and community organizations and Federal, State and Local government agencies in the provision of social services. Current government focuses have included efforts with the Obama Administration as well as bipartisan projects with Democratic and Republican elected officials and offices around the country.

Prior to working at the White House, Jeremy served as coordinator of youth programs at the Unique Learning Center, a faith-based academic enrichment program in Washington, DC. The 23-year old organization works wonders inspiring the city’s youth and equipping them with faith, love and hope along with the academic resources and tools necessary to succeed in life. Mr. White was responsible for tracking the academic progress of the high school students. He is still involved with the center and its students.

In addition to addressing the needs of communities as a practitioner, Jeremy has focused on these issues from a research perspective. He was a program and policy analyst for Public/Private Ventures of Philadelphia, a research organization focused on at-risk youth and education issues. He also was co-author of the Manhattan Institute’s study on Faith-based Programs for At-Risk Youth in Washington, DC. The study examined the extent of programs serving youth identifying over 130 such programs and awarding a selected few small grants to enhance their programs. (The study is available here:

Before working with P/PV, Jeremy worked as a research assistant at the Brookings Institution where he contributed to the book The Orphaned Capital, which provided recommendations that helped to remedy the former financial woes of the District of Columbia’s municipal government. He also worked in the Center on Urban and Metropolitan Policy (now Metropolitan Policy Program) focusing on issues of urban and regional economic development around the country.

Jeremy is a graduate of Princeton University where he majored in public affairs, concentrating on urban revitalization and economic development in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and received a certificate in Spanish Language and Culture. He is currently a non-resident Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Program Research on Religion and Urban Civil Society.
