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

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.
