The HOPE Program

The HOPE Program empowers New Yorkers living in poverty to build sustainable futures through comprehensive training, jobs, advancement and lifelong career support. We offer training for diverse careers as well as specialized programs in the food and green collar sectors. Our comprehensive approach includes digital literacy, financial access, mental health, daily meals, transportation and more. In our over three decades of service, we have achieved results among the strongest in the industry, including a 70% job placement rate, and 90-day and one-year retention rates of 90% and 75% respectively. In the past year, our students and graduates earned $9.8 million in wages! "HOPE reconnected me with the abilities within myself...I now have my dream job as a Kitchen Manager. But I'm not stopping there- I'm working to launch my own bread company and teach others to cook professionally. Most importantly, I want to reconnect with my children and make my mom proud." - Monica, HOPE Graduate
