Working with a Social Worker, clients are required to establish a written, time-oriented plan for achieving self-sufficiency.   Through various federal and state government programs, as well as funding from non-profit agencies, residents are provided opportunities to attend classes at Wor Wic Community College, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Salisbury University or other educational facilities in order to achieve their goals and become productive members of society.    The Village of Hope is widely recognized as an outstanding Delmarva charity.
