HopeWorks Social Enterprises is an affiliate of Housing Hope, and was launched in January 2011 with the goal of helping families gain skills and training for “in demand” jobs to enable them to start towards a living wage career. HopeWorks creates and operates social enterprise businesses designed to provide jobs and internships for families experiencing and at risk of homelessness residing in low-income housing. HopeWorks currently owns and operates three businesses where lots of great training and education happens through paid internships!
GroundWorks Landscaping providing landscape maintenance and installation with a range of services
WaterWorks Irrigation Services supplying backflow assembly testing, landscape irrigation maintenance and repair, system winterization and spring start-ups. Free estimates provided on water-efficient upgrades.
The ReNewWorks Home and Decor Store opened in July 2013. This web-based business has a showroom open to the public, featuring great upscale vintage and retro home furnishings.
HopeWorks Station is a multi-phase project on a site HopeWorks acquired in March of 2014. It began with the rehabilitation of a 17,000 square foot, two story existing building. ReNewWorks Home and Decor, GroundWorks, and HopeWorks adminstration currently operate out of HopeWorks Station, with plans to develop the site to include an additional 5 social enterprise businesses and 100 housing units along with a robust Internship Program and a Training Academy. The site is in close proximity to downtown Everett and its array of services. The population to be served is homeless and low income adults needing internships and employment skills to achieve self-sufficiency.
