Reggie Fullwood and Eric Dale

Operation New Hope extends our most sincere thanks to Northeast Florida Community Action Agency for their significant donation in support of our mission. The $100,000 check presentation was made at our weekly Ready4Work client graduation on Friday, November 18, 2022, at noon.

“We are dedicated to establishing mutually beneficial partnerships that connect families to available resources, stabilize vulnerable households, and promote healthy families and communities,” said NFCAA Director of Finance, Eric Dale.

The NFCAA funds will allow Operation New Hope to provide more services to its clients, including rental assistance, educational courses, food assistance, and employment training.  “The funds from this collaboration will truly impact the lives of dozens of our Ready4Work program participants,” says Reggie Fullwood, ONH President and CEO.  “We appreciate support from NFCAA. The organization has a long history of helping underserved people in Northeast Florida so establishing a partnership between our organizations is a natural marriage of resources.”

NFCAA was established in 1965 and has become a key resource to combat poverty in Northeast Florida. The nonprofit currently administers programs in Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and St. Johns Counties. The organization’s vision is a community where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives alleviating the devastating effects of poverty.

We are so thankful for NFCAA’s support and look forward to years of continued partnership. Thank you for believing in Second Chances!
