We provide support, life and job skills training for people with a history of involvement with the criminal justice system and place them in employment that offers a sustainable quality of life.
In 2003 and President Bush selected Operation New Hope as the pilot site for the Ready4Work® program. Since then, our work has been praised by federal, state and local representatives, law enforcement officers, and business leaders. Recently, VP Mike Pence praised Ready4Work saying it is a "model program not only in Florida but for the US." Internationally, we have been recognized by the House of Mandela as a model program for the world.
Now in our 20th year, we are poised to expand services. It is with great hope that we will continue growing, bringing Ready4Work to cities all over Florida.
