Mission Statement

"To provide shelter, food, housing opportunities, and integrated health care as stepping stones to self-sufficiency for persons experiencing housing insecurity in our community. "
- Source: Hope House website


When an individual faces a housing crisis, he or she may try sleeping on friends' spare beds or couches, or camping in a place deemed safe enough. But when winter sets in, sleeping outdoors becomes dangerous, if not fatal.
Emergency shelter is a necessity.
In 2014, 724 individuals sought temporary relief at Hope House's emergency shelter and the kitchen served as many as 1,000 meals a week.
After significant renovation and expansion, the Hope House now has a 40-hour-perweek medical clinic and 48 transitional housing units.
These programs, along with Case Management and the Home to Stay re-housing program are available to the entire area's homeless population.
Hope House is a low-barrier shelter, available to any adult experiencing a housing crisis.
