The HOPE Program lifts New Yorkers out of poverty through training, jobs, and career advancement. We serve 450 New Yorkers each year. Our students are some of our city’s most vulnerable residents, men and women who are overcoming significant challenges – communities of poverty and violence, low educational attainment, histories of substance abuse and homelessness, and criminal justice involvement.

At HOPE, our comprehensives programming provides training and access to industry-leading certifications with computer and financial literacy, work wellness, access to free breakfast and lunch, MetroCards, art therapy and improv workshops, and a network of support. As a result, our job retention and job placement rates are among the strongest in the field, nationwide. 

While the unemployment rate has improved, there are still hundreds of thousands of out-of-work New Yorkers eager to earn a living and provide for their families. The data tells us that people of color, jobseekers without a high school education, disconnected youth, immigrants and individuals with criminal justice histories face disproportionate challenges to entering the workforce.

These unemployed New Yorkers are exactly the men and women that HOPE serves and who benefit from the proceeds of this event.  But the true impact of our work is reflected in the words of our students:

“Getting a second chance is not something everyone gets to do. And I thank HOPE for mine.” – Charles R., age 61

“I didn’t even know how to turn a computer on. I haven’t worked in 27 years. HOPE has given me the greatest gift of all, and that’s a job” – Alita M., age 55
