Hope Industries


Hope Industries

Hope Industries subcontracts a variety of jobs from companies around the country, thus providing training and employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. By working for Hope Industries, participants at the Barbara Olson Center of Hope learn valuable life and work skills, increase self-esteem and have an opportunity to earn a paycheck.

We approach each contract by working with the employer to determine the timeline requirements and specific output needs of the job. Each task is fully evaluated in order for our participants with special needs to perform the job with the employer's high quality standards in mind and to ensure that these standards are met. Our participants have completed a variety of jobs through Hope Industries, including assembly, labeling, shrink-wrapping, packaging, inspection, sorting, sealing and counting.

Success Story

"Hamilton Sundstrand is constantly looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint. We are very pleased with our collaboration with the Barbara Olson Center of Hope, with respect to their cleaning, sanitizing and repackaging of our visitor safety glasses for reuse. Prior to this collaboration, these glasses were used once and then recycled as plastic waste. We are pleased with the quality of BOCOH's support, as well as the waste reduction we've achieved."
