With over 20 years of experience providing reentry services in Northeast Florida, Operation New Hope is a leader in the field. United by the belief that we all have the power to change our lives for better, our Ready4Release and Ready4Work programs address the problems, concerns, and expectations surrounding reentry and employing the formerly incarcerated.
Our dedicated team of case managers, mental health counselors, and career coaches work with participants one-on-one to address personal needs and overcome obstacles after involvement with the criminal justice system. Our programs give people the tools needed to focus on the future and leave the past behind.
Working in collaboration with the Department of Corrections, we deliver pre-release services to over 20 facilities in Florida. Our dedicated Ready4Release Case Managers bridge the reentry divide to ensure adequate housing, transportation, and job training.
Participants in our free Ready4Work program receive training, job placement, financial benefits, support services, housing and transportation assistance – everything needed to build a new future after involvement with the criminal justice system.
Financial independence, pride, and meeting positive people can be your future. Learn how others found the confidence and skills to make change happen.
“Prison broke me. But when I came here, I had an opportunity to change that. They give you everything you need to reach out and get your goals. It’s all right here. I have never felt so many people care about me that I don’t know. Everyone here has had my back. I got a job, I’m successful, and I thank everyone here!“
– Danielle, Ready4Work Graduate 2019
