About the Hope Works Program
Our Hope Works program is focused on providing practical life and vocational skills to the children in our care through hands-on learning experiences and exposure to a variety of skill-based activities while working alongside peers and knowledgeable adults.
Valuable Work Experience + Life Skills
The Hope Works program provides the children with work and life skills they will need for adulthood with a focus on enhancing independence, building self-esteem, mastering competency, and learning social-relational skills.
Opportunity + Preparedness
The Hope Works program creates opportunities for youths to develop time management skills, punctuality, a good work ethic, interviewing skills, positive relational skills, and more – preparing them to launch into work outside of campus.
Because of you, their future is bright.
From full-time positions to volunteer roles, your service can make a difference for children and families who urgently need help.Get Involved
How the Program Works
Children ages 12 and older assist our trained maintenance staff with tasks around campus that demonstrate important life skills, including: landscaping household cleaning, plumbing, home repair, vehicle repair, woodworking, and lawn equipment maintenance.
