ABOUT

HOPEWORKS

OUR MISSION

HopeWorks Social Enterprises helps low-income, Snohomish County residents, achieve self-sufficiency through social enterprises that provide training and pathways to living-wage jobs.

WHY AND HOW IS OUR MISSION ACHIEVED?

Many people in our community are experiencing homelessness, disabling conditions or other life events that stand in the way of self-sufficiency. HopeWorks exists to give them opportunities to thrive. We own and operate businesses specifically created with the purpose of training and employing interns from disadvantaged backgrounds as a way to prepare them for future success. By providing landscaping services through GroundWorks, a collection of well-curated furniture at ReNew, and a handcrafted menu at Kindred Kitchen, HopeWorks helps secure economic empowerment for individuals and the entire community. Through deliberate and resourceful business planning, extensive collaboration with our corporate and community partners, and a commitment to tangible outcomes, we are bringing our vision to reality – one where everyone, no matter their situation, has an equal chance at a safe and secure future.
