Hope Inspired Ministries (HIM) serves chronically unemployed individuals by helping them obtain, maintain, and excel at employment. Founded in Montgomery, Alabama in 2012, HIM has experienced steady growth every year and operates today in five locations across Alabama, adding Birmingham, Lowndes County, Bessemer, and Mt. Meigs locations following on the success of the Montgomery campus.


The HIM approach is based on a curriculum that incorporates the structure and accountability of a workplace, and wraps it with empathy and compassion. It was not designed to help people survive in poverty, but rather to equip them to escape this hopelessness and despair and to become contributing citizens.

The HIM process is built on a nine-week job training program where students are exposed to the skills necessary to be successful in a work environment. Students participate in six weeks of classroom instruction covering soft skills, employment skills, financial management, character development, nutrition and other essential topics. Concepts such as problem-solving, critical thinking, anger management, health, and wellness are covered. 

Students participate in mock interviews, prepare resumes, and receive assistance applying for employment online. When needed, they receive help getting a driver’s license and other forms of identification. After six weeks of training, students serve a three-week internship with a local business, which often leads to full time employment with the intern provider. The internship allows students to practice the skill sets they have recently learned. Students graduate in a cap and gown ceremony where each graduate gives a speech and explains the transformation that has taken place in his or her life. This nine-week cycle repeats six times per year.

Results from the HIM program in Montgomery demonstrated that even the most marginalized men and women can become self-supporting, productive members of the community, and led to the expansion into the other aforementioned areas of Alabama, where the success of the program has been replicated. The transformation from dependency to self-sufficiency has a long-lasting impact. When personal dignity is restored and hopelessness removed, the skills and values can be passed down to children and grandchildren and ultimately have a generational impact on society.
