Two of our residents recently graduated from working on the farm and began working with partners in our Building Futures program.  

One resident is working under the tutelage of Ed Schoen at 1st Avenue Woodworking in Royersford, PA.  Ed is teaching this resident how to make custom furniture.  Owners Ed and Sherrie have been in business since 1987 and enjoy an excellent reputation for creating one of a kind pieces for the home.

Our other resident is working with owner and executive chef, Andrew Deery, at Majolica in Phoenixville, PA.  Andrew, voted best chef in Chester County, is sharing his lifelong love of the culinary arts with a young man interested in honing his gastronomic skills.   These Manor of Hope residents are delighted with their placements and look forward to gaining lifetime skills from these exceptional Building Futures mentors.

If you are a small business owner interested in giving back to the community by sharing your business acumen with one of our residents, please contact Steve Killelea, Founder of Manor of Hope.  You can email him at or call him at 610-637-7722
