At Run Hope Work, we have adjusted our programming to a hybrid model, combining in-person and virtual learning. Our trainings require as much social distancing possible and mandatory masks. 


Three times a week our cohort meets for in-person training to acquire trade certifications and become work-ready.


Twice a week, we are fully virtual and engage with licensed therapist and community stakeholders to discuss mental wellness.

In July 2020, Run Hope Work was awarded the DC HOPE grant. This grant allowed us to partner with Hurdle, a teletherapy provider, in offering free access to therapy and mental health support while enrolled in our program. This grant came at an auspicious time, as the world becomes increasingly virtual in the wake of COVID-19, it allowed us to incorporate Hurdle’s teletherapy services into our virtual-learning days. The DC HOPE grant has allowed us to add a much needed resource to our program, prioritizing mental wellness during these uncertain times. 

Be assured that our staff and participants are adhering to strict safety protocols during our in-person training. We check temperatures of everyone entering the RWH office and require masks and social distancing for all indoor and outdoor meetings, learning, and activities.
