In honor of Second Chance Month, Operation New Hope is thrilled to spotlight The Boeing Company for being a Second Chance Supporter. We are so thankful for Boeing’s $50,000 investment in our mission to provide support and training to people impacted by the criminal justice system to help break the cycle of incarceration and poverty.
Through purposeful investments, employee engagement, and thoughtful advocacy efforts, Boeing and its employees support innovative partnerships and programs that align with the company’s strategic objectives, create value, and help build better communities worldwide. This includes improving access to globally competitive learning as well as workforce and skills development, and supporting our military and veteran communities.

At Operation New Hope, we are grateful for Boeing’s help in supporting people as they navigate reentry and overcome the multitude of barriers they face as they seek employment. The essential services we provide our clients – transitional housing, transportation, job training and placement, mental health counseling, connection to social services – are more important now than ever. Providing these resources not only helps individuals returning from prison, but also serves as an important economic need by matching qualified, vetted employees with industries in need of workers, as well as, an important community safety measure, by helping to stabilize neighborhoods and prevent further crime.
As President Biden stated in his Proclamation on Second Chance Month in 2021:
“America’s criminal justice system must offer meaningful opportunities for redemption and rehabilitation. After incarcerated individuals serve their time, they should have the opportunity to fully reintegrate into society. It benefits not just those individuals but all of society, and it is the best strategy to reduce recidivism. During Second Chance Month, we lift up all those who, having made mistakes, are committed to rejoining society and making meaningful contributions.“
President Biden, March 31, 2021
