Feeding the Mind. Nourishing the Soul.
The HOPE HEALS Program is designed to teach students useful culinary techniques, proper food storage & handling procedures, and life skills to build careers in food service and hospitality while maintaining a stable home environment.
Hands-on training gives real time experience in a functioning cafe, catering, and private event settings. Students are able to perform many different roles in each department granting them a greater set of skills. By working and training 'side by side', we can ensure their time is impactful and positive.All students receive a stipend for work performed during ‘hands-on’ instruction in the café.
Students are prepared through our program to acquire nationally recognized ServSafe certification. ServSafe is a food and beverage safety training and certificate program administered by the National Restaurant Association. The program is accredited by ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection. This certification is recognized by more federal, state and local jurisdictions than any other food safety certification and is valid for 5 years.
The skills and certification obtained from our program will aid graduates in finding gainful employment and build character. Upon completion of the Hope Heals program, we work closely with our students and local businesses within the restaurant & hospitality industry for job placement.

During the program, students receive both "front of the house" and "back of the house" training.
From the dish pit to baking, our trainees are introduced to every aspect of food service. Students gain respect for the "Farm to Table" movement through gardening, farming fresh produce and working with livestock with their own hands. In our industry proper workplace etiquette and customer service lessons also play a key role, by having our students interact with patrons we are instilling a regard for culinary craftsmanship and customer relationships.
Students are guided through program goals to prepare them for ServSafe testing and Certification.
We encourage our students to evaluate their current behavior and identify habits that will have a negative effect on their training and inhibit them from reaching their goals. Once these counterproductive patterns are distinguished, through the program we teach positive coping mechanisms, encourage accountability and positive thinking, and provide our candidates with access to mental and spiritual aid.
Our Life Skills lessons prepare students for maintaining a stable and secure living environment for themselves and their families. We want to help them properly manage finances, understand the interview process and the importance of a resume. We also give guidance on personal hygiene and personal health, and through volunteering, stress the importance of building relationships throughout the community.
Our goal is to help create a balanced change in students’ lives so they can comfortably transition from their various states of need to self sufficiency as they take steps in creating a new future for themselves. Better Prepared. Better Life.
