Men for H.O.P.E utilizes community outreach, education, and volunteerism as tools for social and economic development in Trenton, NJ. The acronym “H.O.P.E” means “Helping Other People Elevate”. Before COVID, we held free weekly events like our Gang Intervention, Life Skills Mentoring, and more. We also had free athletic programs for basketball and boxing. We even had trips for students interested in chess. Free food and transportation were provided for the children at every event. All the events were free and open to the public.
Now, we have our paid apprenticeship program where students can learn trade skills. We also have weekly food giveaways at our main headquarters, 966 South Broad St in Trenton, NJ. We also distribute food at The Rescue Mission. Feel free to like our Facebook page to get up-to-date information regarding upcoming events and more.
Thank you to all the organizations, like Arm-in-Arm, that have helped us continue giving out food and resources during these times. We also appreciate all the citizens that donate their time and resources to help us make a difference in our community.
