Josh's Hope Foundation provides a unique experience of personal support and on-the-job training to help those with mental health challenges work to improve their health, live a self-directed life, and achieve their full potential.
Job Skills Training
Our Tools For Hope job skills program offers hands-on training in woodworking, welding, plasma cutting, lawn maintenance and agricultural skills such as beekeeping and poultry care.
Our on-the-job opportunities help participants gain job skills and build a resume which will help them secure employment in the community at the end of their time with us. Participants will receive support services and assistance in navigating community resources that support their recovery.
Our Family Hope program works with parents and caregivers of our target population, helping them to navigate resources and strengthen advocacy skills so they can help their young adult connect with vital services.
Why Josh's Hope?
Josh’s Hope Foundation was established as a living memorial to Josh Bailey, who struggled with mental health, and was murdered in 2008 at the age of 20 by a gang in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. At Josh’s Hope, we believe that all young people struggling with mental health conditions deserve the support and resources they need to build a rewarding life. We welcome you by helping remove obstacles and creating opportunities. Join us.
