Mission Statement

Men for H.O.P.E is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Trenton, NJ that provides low income and below poverty level citizens with food, transportation, professional and academic resources.

Description

Men for H.O.P.E was founded by Britton Thomas III and his wife, Felicia Thomas, in March 2011. They moved from Newark, NJ and began addressing key social issues in Trenton, NJ such as gang violence, truancy, and poverty. They started with twelve students who were passionate about making a difference. These students expressed their community concerns and career interests to us; we utilized their feedback to produce engaging trips and activities that piqued their interest. They all graduated from high school and we now work with up to fifty to sixty students.
