Project Hope

Did you know you have the opportunity to have a health care career?Project Hope

You could belong to a professional group called allied health providers. These professionals work every day to make a difference in someone’s life by:

  • Helping them heal properly after an injury
  • Looking at their blood to make sure they’re healthy
  • Taking an x-ray to study their bones
  • Helping them during and after surgery

There are so many options! You will be helping others and growing as a person. Allied health careers are stable, pay well, and are extremely rewarding.

Project HOPE participants are eligible to receive assistance with tuition, fees, books, uniforms, housing, child care, and transportation.

Project HOPE is targeting young adults ages 17–25 who meet one of these criteria:

  • They have aged out of the foster care system.
  • They are in a family receiving TANF or SNAP benefits.
  • They are a low-income high school Health Science completer.

Participants need to have a high school diploma with a 2.0 GPA or a GED, a clean criminal background check, and a clean drug screening. (The background check and drug screening are paid for by the project).

More information about Project HOPE and application forms can be found on their webpage.
