People experiencing homelessness, are precariously-housed, or are seeking low-wage jobs suffer from many barriers as they look for work.  Many have fewer qualifications such as specialized training or a high school/college diploma, have longer gaps in their employment history, and typically have less overall job experience.  In addition to these personal challenges, these individuals have little to no employment-related resources, such as reliable transportation, a driver’s license, appropriate clothing, or stable housing.

HopeWorks helps people address these barriers head-on, assisting clients in overcoming obstacles that prevent them from meeting their goals.  In addition to connecting clients to employment opportunities, HopeWorks also offers Medicaid enrollment, obtaining necessary identification, connecting to partner organizations, and scheduling critical appointments.

Our track record speaks for itself.  We continue to place about 300 individuals into permanent jobs every year.
