Schedule 738X – Human Resources & Equal Employment Opportunity Services

PARSIPPANY, NJ -- Community Hope has been awarded a General Services Administration (GSA) schedule contract number GS-02F-157AA for Schedule 738X – Human Resources & Equal Employment Opportunity Services. This contract with base five years and three five-year options to extend will better enable the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) and other government agencies to more quickly and efficiently take advantage of the Contract Residential Treatment Program and Supportive Transitional Housing Programs proudly offered by Community Hope to Veterans.

“This contract affords us the opportunity to reach more veterans who can benefit from our 28-years of experience in providing supportive housing services” said J. Michael Armstrong, Community Hope Chief Executive Officer and himself a veteran. “After serving more than a thousand veterans, we are aware of our veterans’ specific needs, including those that have experienced combat, repeated tours of duty and trauma.

Founded in 1985, Community Hope’s mission is to help individuals, including veterans, and their families, overcome mental illness, addiction, homelessness and poverty. Community Hope, operating the various Hope for Veterans® Programs, is the largest nonprofit organization in and around New Jersey serving homeless veterans and veteran families.
