About us

The HOPE Program (HOPE) has a 30-year track record of successfully empowering New Yorkers to lift themselves out of poverty through training, jobs and career advancement. HOPE is an outcomes-focused organization.  Our student-centered approach, employer-driven training, wide range of support services, and commitment to lifelong support yield strong results, notably a job placement rate of 72% and retention rates of 91% at 90 days and 74% at one-year.  We are focused on expanding our impact and positioning ourselves for growth while continuing to enhance the quality of our services. Sustainable South Bronx (SSBx), a subsidiary of HOPE, was founded in 2001.  SSBx prepares low-income individuals for jobs in the growing green collar sector through training and transitional employment opportunities.  Connected to SSBx is SmartRoofs, LLC – SSBx’s social enterprise.

The HOPE Program has won numerous awards, including JPMorgan Chase/Enterprise Foundation‟s selection as one of the nation‟s three model Workforce Development programs, the Robin Hood Foundation‟s Hero Award and, for three years in a row, Charity Navigator‟s four-star rating for excellence in management.
