HOPE transforms the lives of New Yorkers living in poverty through training, jobs and career advancement.
HOPE students face serious barriers - criminal justice involvement, substance abuse histories, chronic unemployment, precarious housing arrangements, and more. HOPE works to ensure our students have the hard and soft skills to succeed in today's workplace.
Our holistic programming has a proven track record of producing industry-leading outcomes: 74% of our graduates are able to secure employment, with nearly 95% able to reach the 90-day job retention milestone. And a major benchmark achievement, 76% of our students are still employed a year later!
We hope you will join us and support the men and women of HOPE who are dedicated to changing their lives!
