There have been recent incidents of scammers sending fraudulent text messages impersonating First Hope Bank and other banks to try and trick consumers into sharing their online banking login credentials.  Do not click on any links in text messages from numbers you don’t recognize.  First Hope will never text, call, or email you for your banking information.  If you receive an inquiry or don’t recognize a transaction in your account, please contact the Bank immediately at (908) 459-4121 or (973) 729-8333, or visit your local branch.

Thank you so much for helping us with our refinance. We were in a difficult position and nobody else seemed to care or want to help. We worked with Virginia for quite some time to figure things out, but she never gave up on us like everyone else we tried to seek help from. We are extremely grateful for all of your help. Thank you so much!!”

— Carrie & Jerald

“The team at First Hope has been absolutely wonderful! Virginia Green was extremely supportive and helpful from the day my wife and I met her. She went above and beyond to assist us as we went through the experience of purchasing our first home. I cannot thank her enough for her dedication to making sure all of questions were answered. We could not be happier with the experience. Thank you all so much!!!”

— Matthew and Kristy S.

“The whole premise behind Pass it Along, is that everyone has something really incredible to give. We needed a home; First Hope provided us with an office. We needed financial support; they helped us; they were there. They gave us what we needed for our project. When we needed the volunteers, their associates led our program.”

— Diane Taylor, Pass it Along
