OUR NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY
Operation Hope of Fairfield hires and promotes employees regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin or ancestry, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, medical condition or physical handicap or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
Operation Hope is an equal opportunity employer. Operation Hope strives to be culturally competent, responding respectfully and effectively to people of all cultures, classes, races, ethnic backgrounds and religions in a manner that recognizes, affirms and values the cultural differences and similarities and the worth of individuals, families, and communities and protects and preserves the dignity of each person.
Operation Hope was formed in 1986 when local residents became aware of individuals in the community unable to meet their own basic needs of food and shelter. Clergy and lay leaders worked together to provide food and emergency shelter.
AT A GLANCE
Operation Hope aims to end hunger and homelessness for our neighbors in need. We believe that everyone deserves supportive relationships, hope for the future and a place to call home.
