In addition, an employee’s contribution will be matched by New Hope Housing up to 25% of the first one percent of the employee’s salary.

Career and Professional Development
New Hope Housing is a learning organization. That is why we invest in staff learning and development, and encourage staff to move in directions that best suit the individual staff member as well as our agency mission.
To help staff to succeed from day one, we offer a comprehensive orientation program. Through the orientation, the employee is assisted in understanding our programs and the population we serve, to know what is expected of the employee, and to pursue the employee’s own professional goals. The employee has control of his or her own development in a job that offers real variety and challenge.
We offer a range of formal training programs and encourage continuous professional development for everyone. We also will support staff in pursuing higher education by offering a generous tuition reimbursement policy if coursework leads to a degree relevant to our mission and an individual’s position responsibilities.
