Operation New Hope is excited to share our newest promotional advertisement which explains the many benefits of the Ready4Work reentry program.
At Operation New Hope, we believe Second Chances Matter. That’s why for over 20 years, we have been helping clients get the skills they need to find living wage work so they can make a fresh start, reunite with family, and become productive members of their communities.
Once accepted into our FREE program, each client is partnered with a Case Manager, Mental Health Counselor and Job Coach who provide support to overcome the barriers common after incarceration. We pay for transitional housing and bus passes for 3 months, provide free access to wellness and health care, offer professional clothes for interviews and assistance obtaining vital documents like birth certificates and driver’s licenses.
Clients who remain drug free and attend our daily Ready4Work training classes for 4 weeks, earn $50 for every week of participation and an additional $75 when they graduate.
In a competitive job market, we know training is key, so we also offer vocational opportunities, like Warehouse and Logistics, Forklift Operation and Customer Service Certification.
The success of the program is evident in the transformation stories of our clients. Operation New Hope has truly transformed Jacksonville into the City of Second Chances.
