Shape Up & Shape the World Initiative

Scheduled to commence in May 2024, the Shape Up & Shape the World initiative will assist 25 individuals experiencing homelessness in the City of Newburgh by providing them with free haircuts, professional attire, and comprehensive job readiness training to enhance the participants’ confidence and employability.

This exciting project is being made possible by the generous support of The Awesome Foundation, a global community that awards awesome project ideas with micro-grants to support initiatives in a wide range of areas, including the arts, community development, technology, and more. Their commitment to fostering positive change resonates deeply with RUPCO’s mission of creating homes, supporting people, and improving communities.
