WHO WE SERVE
Jobs of Hope is a unique nonprofit in Weld County, Colorado working to provide targeted program support to help men 18 and over who were released from incarceration, had or have a gang affiliation and struggle with substance abuse. Men who are ready to change their family tree.
At Jobs of Hope we believe that the only time we are looking down on a fellow brother is when we are helping him get back up. We have served over 300 men and our non-judgmental philosophy allows you to be vulnerable and self discover the man you hope and wish to be. Check out the media tab to learn more about our impact and how lives can be transformed.
Our mission is to restore hope and see transformation in the lives of gang-affiliated individuals and those involved in the justice system.
We envision a community freed from the effects of gang involvement and incarceration through faith found in Jesus Christ thereby transforming individuals and generations.
WHO WE ARE
Jobs of Hope, Inc. was founded in 2013 for the purpose of providing support for Colorado men seeking to reenter the community and obtain a better quality of life. We are a faith-based reentry program focused on working to help gentlemen coming out of incarceration and/or gang-involvement leave behind years of legal problems. We believe that through Jesus’ love, case management, life skills training, assistance with employment and education we can be a bridge for our participant to reconnect with their families and community and vice-versa, to help our community engage with our participants and share our vision of seeing their potential to become positive and productive members of society.

They want to raise their children and want to give them the best, just like you and I. Your support of this program/ministry allows us to give hope to those who feel like there is no hope. Thank you for investing in our community, by investing in these young men.
