The Definition of HOPE

Geraldine L. defines HOPE for all. Geraldine lost her job suddenly; however, her determination paid off after taking full advantage of the Urban Strategies Memphis HOPE program. She participated in all training programs and job fairs, applied for hundreds of jobs, and completed all tasks assigned by Memphis HOPE employment specialists.

Today, Geraldine, a mother of two, has been working at Methodist Le Bonheur Hospital for almost a year and her courage and persistence inspires us to never lose HOPE in the face of adversity.
