THE STORY:

We're putting in miles for HOPE!! Every day, New Yorkers living in poverty come to The HOPE Program to build brighter futures for themselves, their families and our communities through employment. These men and women enter HOPE with unimaginable barriers - low educational skills, conviction histories, and more. But that doesn't stop them from building critical job skills, succeeding in the workforce, and working toward job advancement.  

The difficult journey and rewarding success of HOPE students is inspirational to us as we prepare to reach our own personal goals.  Danya is tackling the New York City and Granite State Wheelman Century Bike Rides in 2 weekends in September - that's 200 miles!  And Irene is running both the New York City and inaugural Brooklyn Marathons in November - for a total of 52.4 miles. 

We invite you to join us in raising $20 for each mile, for a total fo $5048.  This support will help provide over 200 New Yorkers with hundreds of hours of work readiness training, computer instruction, GED tutoring, meals, professional wardrobes, mental health services, job placement services, and ongoing support to ensure that clients retain and advance in their jobs.  Your gift will also help us maintain a caring and supportive community which celebrates client success, addresses challenges, and works with clients as they rebuild their lives. 

The impact of HOPE's work is clear in the story of recent graduate, Robert.   With HOPE’s intensive training and support, Robert is recovering from heroin addiction and has gained the skills and the confidence needed to secure a job with advancement opportunities. As a result of hard work, he will soon regain custody of his four year-old daughter.  Robert also just signed the lease to his own apartment - his first in many years!

The next few months will be difficult for us - logging countless miles in the heat and humidity.  But we are driven by the reward of helping our neighbors participate meaningfully in their communities, reclaim confidence and dignity, and escape the cycle of poverty.  We are so grateful for your support in this journey.
