Empowerment

Raising HOPE gives Ulster County women tools to become self-sufficient.

Scholarship HOPE



Raising HOPE offers academic scholarships and grants to support our mentees’ educational and vocational goals.

  • Scholarships to those who wish to continue their education but need financial assistance to do so.  Women who receive this scholarship must be high school graduates and the equivalent, and be accepted to a two- or four-year college or a vocational/professional program.

Financial Assistance

  • Support to ease financial pressure at critical junctures in life, including but not limited to housing assistance, child care assistance, educational supplies, and travel expenses.
