Social Exchange

At Operation New Hope, we know how important strategic partnerships with local businesses and community partners are in motivating individuals to become productive, responsible citizens. That is why we invite you to join us in the Social Exchange - a monthly community meeting focused on discussing issues impacting our clients as they reenter society.

The Social Exchange is a forum to network, celebrate successes, brainstorm solutions, and build mentoring relationships.  The Social Exchange is open to all - current and former clients, business partners, community members,  volunteers - everyone who believes Second Chances Matter. 

The Social Exchange is crucial to cultivating and expanding our clients' chances of success. We know that when people are engaged, connected, and employed members of society, they are more invested and less likely to recidivate. This leads to safer, healthier communities and lower incarceration costs, allowing us to reinvest critical dollars into other areas of development. We hope you will join the Social Exchange in our mission to build a stronger City of Second Chances.
