What is Hope ED@Home
Hope Clinic for Women is aware of the additional burden the current health crisis creates for high shcool students needing community service hours and young women and moms at home with children. To help meet needs created by isolation at home, Hope is excited to provide education and physical resources that in the end will help you to come through this difficult time armed with tolls to bring thope to your life and family.
BrightCourse is an online educational resource that we normally use at Hope for moms who are home bound due to illness, or issues related to their pregnancy. We are now opening the opportunity to sign up for this to all who are interested
How does BrightCourse work?
- A client calls reeptiona t 760-728-4105 ext 20 with interest in learning more about the program.
- Staff provides an application to sign up online and also assigns a client advocate who will work with the client through her edcuation.
- The client advocate connects by phone with the client and provides a link for a paticular class that the client selects from BrightCourse options - weekly or monthly.
- Once that phone/online meeting is completed, the client receives Hope bucks that allow her to receive diapers, wipes, formula and baby clothes for children upt to 2T. Our resource manager will select these items since shopping in our boutique is not possible during the health crisis.
- The client is assigned a time to pick up the free resources at the back door of the clinic.
Online Community Service Hours for High School Students
How do students earn 9-10 community service hours by volunteering for 5 weeks to particpate in the survey? Be part of a teen focus group to read some of the flyers from HCW and then give us some measurable feeback through the form of surveys. All information gathered will be used to enhance our services. Note: Information gathered through the focus groups, will not contain any identifying factors and shall remain anonymous for the purpose of the focus group. For more information please contact Edna at email@example.com or call at 760.728.4105.
As Hope Clinic for Women moves forward in our efforts to reach the men who come in our door, one of the key ingredients to our success will be input, engagement and ownership from those who know best what it means to be a father. Therefore, we ask for your insight. Soon, we will hold an informal gathering of men to discuss and brainstorm solutions for reaching men most effectively. Several samples of curricula and ideas will be available for all of you to consider. Over time, we want to effectively strengthen these young fathers, many of whom have never had a father in their lives.
Our ultimate mission? Build more families. Families with two parents. Families with a faith in God and hearts to serve others.In short then, we’d love for you to join us as we launch this effort. As we begin this process, we realize time is a factor for many. At this point then, we are not asking for volunteers or for those who will play certain roles. All we are looking for are those who will provide input and counsel.
Interested? We hope so. If so, simply drop Lili Ramirez, Program Services Director an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch at 760-728-4105 Ext 12. From there, we’ll connect and find a time when most of us can meet and begin this process. It’s an exciting time for Hope Clinic for Women, and we would love to have you to join us.
GED Completion Program
Hope Clinic for Women recognizes that many of the women who come to us are facing an incomplete high school education and that is their greatest obstacle. This puts young mothers at risk of falling into an unplanned pregnancy, poverty, and homelessness. We have a strong group of trained volunteers who focus on preparing the women in our programs to take their GED tests.
To apply for the program, please visit us and fill out an application and complete a pre-test to determine eligibility for the program. Our GED Completion Program for women is led by professional teachers and meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm to 8:00pm during the school year (September to May). One-on-one tutoring, study materials, group lessons, and practice tests are all provided free! Hope Clinic for Women will help you schedule your GED test when you are ready and cover the cost of the first attempt for each test (there are 4 tests and each test is $37.50). This program is also available for men through one-on-one coaching. Contact Us for more information!
For more information, please contact Executive Director at 760-728-4105 ext 10. A GED volunteer will contact you for class availability as there is a waiting list.
