“I was kicked out in the rain with no shoes or socks. After homelessness and couch surfing, I landed at Project Hope in Stockton.  I am lucky that I  was able to access resources offered to me because I knew stable housing was the first step in finding success. My advice to others who are now in the same situation I was in? Put all of you into it. You have to be willing to put the work in. Who knows? You may just be the next President. Perseverance. Resilience. Self-Motivation. Those are the keys.” - Leandra

Based in Stockton, Project Hope provides intensive and comprehensive case management services to assist youth on the edge of homelessness in becoming more self sufficient.  Our case managers build a trusting and strong relationship with the youth, helping them with problem-solving and conflict resolution, as well as help each young person to create attainable goals and learn independent life skills. Project Hope encourages personal and economic self-sufficiency through strengthening both youth support systems and their desires to fulfill their potential and abilities.
