Hope and a Home’s Work & Thrive program has provided intensive tutoring, mentoring, job-readiness training and summer employment opportunities to over 35 young people. However, there is a need to engage young people in positive activities throughout the year. Your donation help 3 high-risk youth build a strong foundation of skills and experiences that will foster life-long success.


With your donation, we will hire experienced youth trainers to provide life and job skills training, pay for participation in valuable enrichment programs, sponsor local college tours and purchase suits to wear during job interviews.

Long-Term Impact

Because of your donation, the positive experiences that young people will gain through Work and Thrive will build the self-confidence, character and life skills they need to set and achieve goals throughout their lives.
