HIRE ONE HELP ONE

NextOPP donates career coaching services to a survivor of domestic violence for every candidate hired.

74%

Percentage of survivors who remained in abusive relationships longer than they wanted because of financial concerns.

Domestic violence affects millions of individuals across the US regardless of age, economic status, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ability, or education level.

99%

Percentage of domestic violence cases that include financial abuse.

Helping survivors secure a job is a powerful way to address inequality and empower the most vulnerable members of our society.

OUR VISION

A world where free career coaching resources are readily available to victims of domestic violence who are trying to achieve financial independence.

“When you live in a relationship governed by control and manipulation you live as if you were blindfolded. Although I was a contributor to my family working full-time, even while pregnant with twins, all the finances were kept out of reach.

I had no access to bank accounts, and no clear picture of how our earned money was used. When it was time for me to look for a job to support myself and my children as a single parent, I had no clue what I needed to get... and what’s worse, I didn't believe I could get it.”

DESIGNED FOR SUSTAINABLE, LONG-TERM IMPACT

In order to help survivors sustainably over the long term, we purposely embedded a way to give back into the DNA of our business.


The one-for-one model ensures that our for-profit side of the business sustains the non-profit side. We don’t accept donations or sponsorships – instead, every company that uses us as a recruiting service directly contributes to the growth of our program.

As the very first service company to implement a one-for-one model, we hope to inspire more service companies to tackle complex social and environmental issues AS they grow their profits, not as an afterthought.

OUR STORY

As a teenager, our co-founder Gail had a transformative experience when she witnessed her mom helping another mother in her community who suffered from domestic violence.

Gail’s mother connected the woman to a network of other women who provided support and protection at a time when such organizations did not exist in the public sector, and was profoundly touched by the experience.

 

As adults, Gail and Rebecca discovered how intertwined financial abuse is with domestic abuse. As they began researching ways to help, they saw an opportunity to support domestic violence centers with programming to help women find jobs effectively.


They realized that their skills as recruiters could fill an important need: by providing the structure, volunteers, and expertise to develop an effective career coaching program. And so, the nextOPP Hire One Help One program was born.

PROGRAM EXPANSION

In 2021 we set out to strengthen our Hire One Help One expansion into the NY area and successfully did so by partnering with Sanctuary for Families and their incredible Economic Empowerment Program (EEP).

In 2021 alone, EEP placed 73 client/families in jobs averaging $45K per year. 95% of those were on PA, half were in Domestic Violence shelters, most are women of color, and most never made more than minimum wage. EEP does an unbelievable job upgrading hard and soft skills and instilling professionalism, but the Director of the program said that nextOPP's work, the sessions we conduct with their clients, brings it all home.

"There is a good chance that your Career Day presentations are reflected in some of those placements and we are grateful for that.  Over 80% of our job placements are found by our clients – in the open job market so what you are doing is working!"

Our goal for 2022 is to expand the Hire One Help One program into Charleston, South Carolina.
