About Us

At Hargraves Outreach we are truly committed to being the “Bridge” to help so many overcome the various “Barriers” that hinder them from finding employment. One thing that sets our team a part is that we are all very passionate about our mission to assist the underserved population to find employment.
We don’t consider what we do a job, it is our responsibility to our communities.

Our vision is to educate the community about the importance of inclusion within the workplace.

Our mission is to be a “Bridge over Barriers” by providing individuals the support and training they need to obtain and maintain employment while experiencing personal growth and success in the workplace.

Our team is built on the core values of acceptance, accountability, reliability, diversity.
