“I love how rewarding it is to work at New Hope. The clients are so appreciative of everything staff does for them, it makes every day that much more rewarding and it makes coming to work easy! The best part of my job is seeing the smiles on the individuals’ faces – It truly makes you want to help them succeed day after day.”

Jenny Rath

“When I first began my employment with New Hope, I have to admit I was worried if it would be a good fit for me. I was nervous and scared walking in on that first day! However, I quickly developed relationships with clients and co-workers to the point where they became my second family. Even on a bad day – walking in that front door to the clients smiling faces changes my whole mood. It is beyond rewarding to see an individual learn how to do a new task to help them in their everyday life. New Hope has taught me to stop, listen and enjoy the little things in life!”
