Hope offered programs in literacy, computer skills and on the job training. Our grant was for their outreach program with an emphasis on job training.
Today Hope has 20 full time and 4 part time staff and expects to help 225 clients each year. Its budget is over $2 million. To be accepted into the program, a client must have completed 7th grade, be at least 18 years old, be drug-free and in stable housing. About half the clients have criminal records.
