Our Helping Others Pursue Excellence (H.O.P.E.) Strategy began out of the desire to directly contribute to community residents, in a meaningful way. Most communities we serve are a contracting population, lack of job skill/readiness development, and have a significant reduction in employment opportunities. The Urban Frontier Organization’s H.O.P.E. Strategy fills a void left by other temporary and permanent placement agencies.   

COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES (CEED)

Just because someone is not “competitive” does not mean that they cannot work. It merely means that they need a different strategy to become employed. CEED provides full employment supports for individuals with varying degrees of ability to start their own business or apply and retain employment to live life to the highest level of their independence.

We believe underfunded parks and recreation departments, vacant and abandoned lots to be an integral component to a community's economic vitality.  We serve as a catalyst for economic and community development by activating forgotten, neglected or abandoned spaces supporting the areas of recreation, art, entertainment, and food diversity.
