HopeWorks is a cause we believe in because they don't just give people a hand out, they give them a hand up. With a holistic 13-week personal career development program, HopeWorks helps the poor and chronically unemployed to learn life skills, job skills, interview skills — even earn their GED if necessary — to become gainfully employed and contributing citizens of our city. Furthermore, HopeWorks clients are given spiritual guidance and counseling by a staff of trained professionals and dedicated volunteers.
We are proud to lend our support for the Second Annual HopeWorks Breakfast, "A Morning of Hope" this February 20. The breakfast fundraiser will be highlighted by speaker Sean Tuohy, a local entrepreneur, NBA broadcaster and subject of The Blind Side. The incredible story of the Tuohy family's relationship with Michael Oher mirrors the way HopeWorks shows compassion, provides opportunity and helps people realize their potential in life.
