Take a Hike and Transform a Life!

We are thrilled to bring you the 26th Annual Hike for Hope, formerly the Hike for the Homeless. Your support of this event raises awareness and crucial funding to provide unhoused, low-income, and other disadvantaged individuals with a pathway to stability and self-sufficiency through quality employment. 

Last year, we helped over 10,000 people! We guided clients into good jobs - helping them get work-ready and stay employed by providing various resources such as uniforms, tools, job skills certifications, transportation vouchers, and much more.
Our work is only possible because of the support from people like you!
