More Than Just Hope

Prospects in Camden, NJ, one of the most impoverished and murder-ridden cities in the U.S., are finally looking up, particularly for its younger residents. This is in part thanks to Hopeworks, a nonprofit that provides Camden’s youth with employable skills while addressing childhood trauma and socioeconomic stresses. Having served 3,500+ people in their 17 years of operation, Hopeworks is now expanding its success story to Philadelphia, where they will implement a pilot program later this year.
