Project Hope Program
Project Hope provides intensive and comprehensive case management services to assist youth to become self-sufficient. Our case managers help them create obtainable goals by building a strong rapport with the youth, and helping them build life skills to start the process of becoming more independent.
The most important role our case managers play in the lives of these youth is building a trusting and strong relationship. Case managers help the youth with problem-solving strategies and teach the youth some conflict resolution skills. We understand that these life skills are a vital necessity to the success of fragile youth coming out from the foster care system. Some youth coming out of foster care are just one small step from homelessness. Project Hope seeks to prevent a return to homelessness by building on the strengths of our youth. Project Hope encourages personal and economic self-sufficiency through strengthening the youths’ support systems and their desires to fulfill their potential and abilities. We focus on
each individual youth and create individualized learning groups for developing employment skills, financial literacy and healthy living. We will walk hand-in-hand with our youth on their journey to adulthood.
Our youth also receive secondary services through program partnerships with the Department of Health and Human Services Independent Living Program (ILP), One Stop career centers, Job Corps and local churches. We also educate the community about our program and the struggles that our youth may encounter. We promote the youth to always believe in their dreams and to follow them.
