Intergenerational learning and mentoring with the HOPE Program.
The intergenerational HOPE program fosters positive relationships among our residents and local students.
The HOPE program began in 1992 for at-risk special education students from the Bronx. HOPE, standing for Healthcare Offers Permanent Employment, grants special education students exposure to the healthcare system by providing vocational training and job readiness.
This essential project is conducted in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education and is the first of its kind in the United States.
