FALL 2013-WINTER 2014

Seven brave young students joined the Virginia's House of Hope 2013-2014 Tugboat Program this winter. Six young men and one young woman embarked on a journey to live and learn on a Tugboat as a Deckhand for a week. All candidates did a great job and are moving onto the next steps to be hired at Tugboat companies within New York!


The Virginia's House of Hope Gala Reception raised over $40,000 in just one night for our Tugboat Program thanks to all of our supporting companies and individuals. 100% of the proceeds are going towards the Tugboat Program, aimed at finding qualified candidates from underprivileged backgrounds jobs on tugboats. Special thanks to Mike Lauterborn for the wonderful pictures and for capturing this evening perfectly!
