Focus:Hope offers services to expand personal lives

ITC Graduation - February 2010

Focus: HOPE students have access to a wide range of services that set our organization apart from other colleges and training facilities.

Our holistic approach to education means that we work with students to help them manage their personal lives while they prepare for their careers.

Services for students include:

Center for Children

Focus: HOPE students have access to quality day care provided in an educational setting at our Center for Children. This program accepts children from age 6 weeks through 6 years. Also, the after-school program provides recreational activities and assistance with homework for children ages 6 to 12.

Job Placement Assistance

Focus: HOPE education program graduates are eligible for lifetime assistance through our Placement Office.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid assistance is available for those who qualify. The Focus: HOPE Financial Aid Department can assist you in determining the types of financial aid that may be available and will help guide the application process. The department works with various state and federal agencies and lending institutions. Staff members will help you in applying for grants or loans. Following an assessment of your individual needs, a financial aid package will be developed in accordance with state, federal and school guidelines.

Scholarships

Students who demonstrate financial need may qualify for a scholarship. Students must complete all requirements to graduate or the scholarship will be revoked. Privately funded grants and scholarships often have specific eligibility requirements. Read the instructions and eligibility requirements carefully, and verify that you've met them for each application.
