For Clients

The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.

If you’re here, you took the first step

Seeking help is at the heart of HopeWorks. A simple Google search or recommendation from a friend shows that you’re willing to make a change that will positively impact your life. From here, we can help you chart a new path forward. 

When we began more than three decades ago, we wanted to provide hope and a job to people across Memphis – people just like you and your loved ones. 

You haven’t run out of chances – not with God, not with HopeWorks. It is never too late for a new start. 

If you’re having trouble keeping a job, we can help. If your sister was recently released from prison and doesn’t feel like she has career options, we can help. If your friend wants to earn his high school equivalency diploma, we can help. Our programs will help people reach their goals, find stable work and see their future through a new lens.

Which HopeWorks Program Is Right For You?

Adult Education
Get your Diploma

Our adult education programs challenge you to finish your official education and reframe the way you think about learning.

Our HiSET Program is a great place to start. HiSET is the official name of the GED program in Tennessee.

Do you or a loved one need to learn English?
Do you want to improve your ability to get a job?

HopeWorks’ Adult English as a Second Language (AESL) can help you speak, read and write English and learn more about American culture.

Job Readiness
Prepare to Work

You have to learn how to work. Not just how to get a job, but how to keep a job. We have classes and support services that will teach you to present yourself well at the start and maintain good performance on the job. But it doesn’t stop there, we will connect you with employers that are ready to invest in you.

Post Corrections

Perhaps your loved one has spent some time behind bars and is ready for a second chance. We have classes on the inside of Shelby County Division of Corrections, as well as follow up programs to help when they have been released.
