SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is Embedded in Our DNA

HopeWorks embeds sustainability in our work and where we work at HopeWorks Station. The two buildings that create our campus both have features that help reduce our impact on the environment. In our work, we train our staff, trainees, and residents of Housing Hope’s Station Place in sustainability practices. Station Place is part of our new north building which includes 65 units of affordable housing.

Our new building, HopeWorks Station North is ultra-green. It is a demonstration project where affordable housing, workforce development and job training, combine with sustainability elements that help people, planet, and prosperity.

Watch our virtual tour below to learn more about this innovative building. There is also more information about the many aspects that make this building amazing.
