The Hope Program

The Hope Program

Intergenerational programming is critical to the Hebrew Home’s mission of empowered aging. The HOPE program, Healthcare Offers Permanent Employment, was established in 1992 in partnership with the New York City Department of Education’s District 75, which serves students with intellectual disabilities.

The HOPE program originated from the belief that the Hebrew Home community is a living resource for learning. Engagement with our residents is a core element of the curriculum. HOPE students also work alongside Hebrew Home team members in various departments, gaining valuable skills and experience. From Engineering to Food Services, HOPE students contribute their energy and enthusiasm as they grow and learn.

Through connecting young people with dreams and older adults with a lifetime of wisdom, a unique synergy is born. HOPE students gain confidence and the necessary technical and life skills to successfully secure health care employment upon graduation, and our residents experience the fulfillment of forming meaningful mentoring relationships with young people.
