Intern with us!

House of Hope internships provide college students with hands-on experiences in a nonprofit setting. Interns will learn and experience serving women and children within our community with respect and empowerment.  

House of Hope provides two internship experiences each semester. Our positions are Nonprofit Intern and Children’s Case Manager Intern.  

Nonprofit Interns will gain an overview and hands-on experience in what it takes to run a nonprofit. Interns develop an understanding of the case management side of the organization, as well as working directly with volunteers, donor relations, fundraising, and office management.  

Children’s Case Manager Interns work under the direct supervision of our Case Managers. Interns will plan and implement children’s programming. Interns have the opportunity to watch, learn, and assist in providing case management with a focus on guidance and goal measurement to the residents of the House of Hope.  

Internships are eligible for class credit.

Madeline Baridon: “I learned more things than I could count during my time as an intern at HOH. The staff was amazing, and truly felt like family after my time there. I loved getting to know the women and was blessed to get the chance to hear their stories and know their kiddos, even if only for a short time. Working at HOH is truly an amazing experience, and I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.”
