What is HopeWorks?
HopeWorks Social Enterprises is an affiliate of Housing Hope, and was launched in January 2011 with the goal of helping families gain skills and training for “in demand” jobs to enable them to start towards a living wage career. HopeWorks creates and operates social enterprise businesses designed to provide jobs and internships for families experiencing and at risk of homelessness residing in low-income housing.
