Residential Care

With our residential care model, we recognize that while food, clothing and shelter are important, they are not enough. Most care models fail to meet a child’s greatest need of a stable, loving family and poorly serve children who have suffered trauma. We are not an institution. We are family. In the context of our loving homes and experienced staff, children receive the support they need to reclaim lost childhoods and begin to build successful futures.

Vocational Training

Through award-winning vocational training, our children gain confidence and skills to disrupt generational cycles of poverty. Hope Unlimited residents and day students from nearby slums master courses in human resources, culinary arts, auto body repair, computer technology, and cosmetology. They learn marketable skills and earn meaningful jobs upon graduation. Eventually, they change the course of their lives—and those of their future generations.

Graduate Transition

Graduate transition is the most critical time in our children’s lives. We’re devoted to guiding our kids through this transition—and it works. After completing our program, 92% of our kids are employed and securely established. Through life skills classes, internships, job placement and mentoring, graduates become self-sufficient leaders, working to change their lives and communities.
