About The Hope Center at Pullen

Location:

1801 HILLSBOROUGH ST, RALEIGH, NC 27605, US

Mission Statement

The Hope Center connects young people aging out of foster care in Wake County with the resources and support they need to make a successful transition to adulthood.

Description

Foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social relationships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future.

Provide safe and stable housing, mental health services, access to continuing education, career planning and employment assistance, and, perhaps most importantly, strong and healthy relationships with adults.

The job readiness/personal development program is a support network of opportunities for life enrichment that meet the participant’s individual needs through employment and self sufficiency. Research shows that unemployment and underemployment is a key factor to homelessness and therefore employment development is key. Carefully assessing the needs of each person and developing a customized plan with our supportive services of assisting with employment, education/trade enhancement and personal development helps us provide the most effective resources and services.
