Spirit of Hope: Workforce Development
Spirit of Hope (SOH) was created as the disaster response program after the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill in 2010. After the emergency ended, the program has moved into long-term recovery and support to people in need. SOH has now directed its efforts to workforce development, focused on the most affected parishes. Click here for an overview of the impact of this program.
