Our outstanding outcomes represent
sustainable transformations for the
men and women we serve.
By adding new sector-based programming and maintaining our focus on intensive employer engagement, HOPE has grown our annual job placements by 34% since 2010.
HOPE graduates secure diverse positions in the industries of food prep and service, retail, maintenance, security, social services, animal care and many more!
The majority of jobs secured by HOPE grads are full-time, helping our graduates on their journeys to self-sufficiency.
HOPE performs in the top tenth percentile of workforce development organizations nationally with regard to 90-day job retention. Our 90-day job retention rate is nearly 20 points higher than the national median! (National Workforce Benchmarking Project, Spring 2014).
Robin Hood Foundation, a HOPE supporter for more than 20 years, recently noted that our one- year job retention rate, a strong indicator of sustainable change, is “laudable...and well above the portfolio average.”
HOPE makes a long-term commitment to our graduates, helping them enroll in additional educational opportunities as well as identify and apply for advanced positions. Congratulations to all of our graduates who are climbing the career ladder!
