Team ONH Celebrates National Night Out Orlando

As the new neighbors in town, Operation New Hope was pleased to participate in Orlando’s National Night Out (NNO) event on November 1, 2022. NNO is America’s night to give crime and drugs a going away party. The tradition began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, and  neighborhood camaraderie.  

Operation New Hope was happy to let everyone in town know that the training and support we provide is helping to break the cycle of crime, incarceration, poverty and addiction. We extend a special thanks to Commissioner Sheehan and the Orlando Police Department for dropping by to participate in the evening’s fun. 

“NNO is much needed!” said Jamara Stephens, Operation New Hope’s Workforce Development Manager at our Orlando program location. “It was great having the police in the community to show care and awareness. We were able to tell them about our Ready4Work program and what we can do to help them with community partnership and coming together. They were delighted that we were here and encouraged us to expand to other locations.”

“With over 20 years experience in providing job readiness training and reentry services in Northeast Florida, we are excited to expand out work to Central Florida,” said Operation New Hope’s President and CEO Reggie Fullwood. “We have helped over 9,000 clients reconnect to the workforce, their families, and the community, and we are committed to creating a statewide network of reentry services throughout Florida.”

Thanks again to everyone who may Operation New Hope’s first NNO celebrate a great event!
