Hope Works Here: A Camden Story
Director: Peter Prokop
Runtime: 28 minutes
Hope Works Here: A Camden Story follows the lives of three students who find hope through their training and trauma-informed care at HopeWorks.
Meet George: a 22-year-old student at Rowan University from Vineland, NJ with a past in drug dealing. Meet Corey: a 23-year- old student overcoming depression and darkness. And Adria: a 23-year-old with a turbulent past, plagued by homelessness, isolation, and illness.
In a city where so much seems to go wrong, what is Hopeworks doing so right? Their approach to overcoming adversity and rewriting the future challenges the way the world sees Camden and Camden’s youth. The staff and young people who bring Hopeworks to life aren’t giving up on their city, and they certainly aren’t giving up on themselves.
