Background

The HOPE Program is a leader among New York City job training providers, upskilling adult jobseekers (ages 18 and above) for a broad range of sectors, including a focus on green construction, maintenance, infrastructure and related careers. We work with individuals facing deep structural barriers to employment, including histories with the criminal legal system, current and/or past homelessness, substance abuse disorders, low educational attainment and more. Our comprehensive approach includes classroom training, industry-recognized certifications, digital literacy and access, financial literacy and access, mental health support, case management, paid job training, and our signature “HOPE for Life” approach, which provides a vital community of support throughout the lives of HOPE graduates’ careers. With measurable outcomes among the strongest in the industry, HOPE’s impact sits at the intersection of COVID-19 recovery, racial justice, and building a more equitable future for New York City.

With offices in Downtown Brooklyn and the Hunts Point section of the Bronx, HOPE operates with 50-60 staff as well as interns and volunteers. Our FY’22 operating budget is approximately $8.7 million. At HOPE, we are focused on expanding our impact and positioning ourselves for growth while continuing to enhance the quality of our services and build upon our successful outcomes.
