Star of Hope Mission
April 29, 2011
As Executive Director of Open Door Mission we work very closely with the staff at Star of Hope in meeting the needs of the homeless and helping many of them transition to independent and productive lives. We know that most Individuals in recovery will spend time in more than one program but seeds get planted along the way. We may plant a seed, and it gets harvested while the individual is at Star of Hope and vice versa. There are times when it becomes necessary to dismiss a resident, andStar of Hope is our first choice for placement. I believe the feeling is mutual because they send people our way too. Since we do not have a program for women and children and do not provide emergency services to those not interested in recovery we refer inquiries for help to Star of Hope. Additionally, there is a plan in progress for the Alumni of both organizations to get involved in joint projects.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Both Star of Hope and Open Door Mission are members of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, and we share common goals in helping the homeless. From personal experience I know that Star of Hope management is highly committed to the cause, and you can see the impact in the lives being changed that are under their care.
