         Tools 4 Hope


Tools for Hope is more than a vocational training program. This on-the-job training opportunity provides many tools for success. Appropriate peer interaction, peer leadership, shared life experience and relevant group programing all provide many tools for success beyond traditional vocational training.

Opportunities for free woodworking and welding training are available in addition to some on-the-job training positions. Initial interviews determine the best path for individual success.

In addition to vocational training, Tools for Hope offers agricultural training in bee keeping, landscaping and light farm work.
