Bringing Hope Home

Industry: Nonprofit

Paul Isenberg’s personal experience with his late wife’s battle with cancer led him to recognize the emotional and financial burden that families face during such challenging times. With a deep sense of empathy and a desire to make a difference, Isenberg set out to help others facing similar struggles.

Bringing Hope Home (BHH), founded in 2008, aims to alleviate the financial strain experienced by families affected by cancer. Through its Light of Hope Family Program, the nonprofit provides one-time financial assistance to pay essential household bills for families in need. Isenberg’s leadership and the dedication of his team have made a remarkable impact on the lives of over 8,700 families in the tri-state area and Baltimore. The program brings hope and relief to those who need it most, ensuring that families can focus on their loved ones’ well-being instead of worrying about financial obligations.

“What sets Paul apart is his genuine kindness and unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of others,” the nonprofit said. “He is a true beacon of hope, and his bear hugs are legendary. His organization’s name, Bringing Hope Home, is a reflection of the work they do, but it is also a reflection of who Paul is as a person. He brings hope to families when they need it most, and his selflessness is truly endearing. Paul is a hero to many, and his legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.”

As CEO, Isenberg has established strategic partnerships with supermarkets, financial service organizations, health systems, professional athletic teams, schools and large regional and national companies. Through these partnerships, he has secured resources and funding to ensure the organization’s continued success. Isenberg’s ability to leverage his extensive network and advocate for the needs of families with cancer has been instrumental in expanding Bringing Hope Home’s reach, the nonprofit said.

“In the next five years, BHH will be endowed at $3 million, raising over $5 million annually and most importantly helping 3,000-5,000 families per year,” the organization said. “We will be in a place where we have a highly engaged and compassionate workforce of over 50 people in 20 states.”

Isenberg’s numerous awards and recognitions include the American Cancer Society Volunteer Award and the WCU Distinguished Alumni Award. He also authored the book, “Lessons Learned: A Comprehensive Guide for Building a Passion-Driven Non-Profit.”

“I think taking a pay cut and going from the for- profit world to nonprofit world was a big leap,” Isenberg said. “It happened because of planning, an unwavering support from my family and a strong belief in a calling.”
