Providing steady income for adults recovering from addiction and/or incarceration

“SECU Foundation is so pleased to provide Hope Restorations with funding to further their reach in the eastern region of Wayne and Pitt counties. This is a wonderful opportunity for North Carolinians to learn and become proficient in a trade that will improve their economic and social stability long-term,” said Lara Lang Tribula, SECU senior vice president in Kinston.

“Restoring and renovating homes for residents in the local community is an incredible way of giving back and bringing hope and healing into the lives of everyone involved.”

“Hope Restorations helps adults recovering from addiction and/or incarceration by providing steady income, employment preparation, mentoring, and other services needed for successful transformation while also restoring the community’s deteriorating properties to produce safe, energy-efficient, affordable housing units,” said Chris Jenkins, Hope Restorations CEO.

“The Hope Restorations executive staff and board of directors plan to use these funds to help add key new roles in the leadership team in order to increase their capacity as they begin expanding into neighboring counties and helping other groups replicate their model across North Carolina.”
