My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Constructing Hope Pre- Apprenticeship Program, Portland, OR, USA
I have known Pat since she was support staff at Irvington Covenant. She assisted the director at that time with everything the program offered. I recall how motivated she was then to make sure students were being served properly. When that program went under, Pat didn't pause for even a minute. She took over the responsibility to continue serving the same population she serves today. That was over 10 years ago and she has never looked back. Pat started out with little to no funding but has developed the program into a sustainable model for serving the community. Pat's legacy is hundreds of underserved, fresh out of incarceration, recovering individuals who now have a new lease on life. She offers hands-on training, life skills education, and wrap-around services to prepare them for a career in the construction trades.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Help locate more funding so Pat could serve more of the community in need of direction, hope, and options for living-wage scale careers.
