Our youth -- and their families -- are the first to be impacted by this economic downturn. Already, both our youth and their families have been hit hardest by the first wave of layoffs in the service and food industries, and the situation continues to worsen.
At Hopeworks, we have been able to keep our youth working and earning wages, sometimes the only person in their household doing so right now. With current client projects and the ability to work remotely with virtual supervision, our interns continue to produce quality products for our clients.
But the longer this health crisis lasts, the harsher the impact on the entire community. Small businesses and nonprofits will be left severely financially restricted and unable to pay for important services that will help them rebound from the economic impact of COVID-19. Here's how you can help keep young people earning critical wages while helping the community recover and move forward!
Donate to Hopeworks COVID-19 Campaign for Community and help grow the Camden Capacity Fund (CCF) so we can offer our services and products to community organizations. Check out information about the Camden Capacity Fund so you'll know how your dollars will keep Hopeworks youth working for the whole community!
