Affirming human dignity and developing just and caring communities for vulnerable children, families at risk, and people in crisis.
Project HOPE (Help Out of Poverty ForEver) is a new initiative from Catholic Charities to combat poverty in Central and Northern Arizona. Project HOPE assists motivated individuals to realize their goals and to leave behind a life of uncertainty for a life of security, stability, and satisfaction. The program consists of 4 sessions of financial literacy classes, 14 sessions of Getting Ahead classes, followed by acceptance into a Circle of Support, whose members accompany the individual as he/she develops then pursues his/her Dream Plan.
Volunteer Opportunities Available:
Project HOPE has volunteer opportunities for trainers to teach a series of financial education classes to adults, teens, and children; trainers to teach a series of 14 “Getting Ahead” classes based on Dr. Ruby Pane’s ideas ; “Circles of Support” mentors to our participants based on their individual needs; childcare volunteers; and volunteers to help prepare and cater meals for our weekly classes.
- Volunteers must provide their own transportation.
