Project Hope CA (PHCA) was founded in 2018 as a grassroots movement of volunteers working to advance access to basic needs and local community resources for traditionally under-resourced areas in Los Angeles County.
Since then, PHCA experienced growth and expanded to focus on three core areas of programming in the City of Pomona: Mentorship, Re-Entry Services, & Community Engagement.
WAGEES Re-Entry Program
The WAGEES (Work and Gain Education & Employment Skills) Program prepares justice-involved youth and young adults for employment through education and training, paid work experiences, mentorship, care advocacy, and leadership development.
In addition to paid work experiences, this program provides post-work experience placement into unsubsidized employment and/or education.
