About this grant

Focus: HOPE, celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2009, continues to provide a comprehensive array of workforce training, education, social supports, childcare, and food distribution services in Detroit. As with most organizations in Michigan, the grantee is facing the challenges of a declining manufacturing economy in southeast Michigan. This renewal grant will help to leverage the investments by other foundations, businesses, and public-sector supporters to sustain the organization.
