Palmer Family Foundation

Hope Builders is grateful to The Palmer Family Foundation and their Premier sponsorship of 10 Days for Launching Careers.

Since 2001, both Greg and Sally have been inspired by the stories of resilience and triumph from Hope Builders’ young adults. Together, Greg and Sally have raised funds and awareness for Hope Builders within the community through their respective roles as a strategic advisor and gala committee member to ensure the organization is able to unlock the greatness in Orange County’s out-of-work and out-of-school youth. 

In 2018, Greg assisted with the development and re-launch of Hope Builders Career Connections (HBCC)—the organization’s staffing agency. “Hope Builders’ successful transition from a non-profit to a social enterprise model is inspiring. Their graduates— who are trained, vetted and supported—are very rare and difficult to find in the community. Their ability to link this talent to great jobs adds tremendous value to employers looking for good talent that’s going to stick around and be productive for a long time.” Greg elaborates, “it’s not easy to change your business model. Hope Builders is not relying on what they did 25 years ago. They’re planning for their future and meeting the challenge head on.”
