Create Opportunities

A job is just the beginning.

Through Employment, We Empower.

We cultivate stronger communities by creating opportunities to realize second chances and reduce recidivism through strategic partnerships with:

  • Judicial System
  • Local Businesses
  • Faith-Based Organizations
  • Community Partners

Operation New Hope is poised to expand our Ready4Release and Ready4Work programs to additional locations around the state to address the critical needs of the thousands of people returning every month from Florida’s jails and prisons. As we expand into new communities, we will build on existing relationships and foster new community coalitions. This time-tested strategy will allow us to fully understand the unique needs of each region and develop relationships necessary to generate additional philanthropic funds to match State support.

By building Cities of Second Chances, we connect returning citizens to their community and motivate program participants to become productive, responsible citizens saving taxpayers millions of dollars by avoiding repeated cost of incarceration and lost tax revenue.
