Mission: Hope house rescue mission strives to eliminate homelessness in our community. We provide physical, emotional, mental and spiritual resources regardless of race, religion, or social status.
Programs: Emergency shelter: the organization provides a safe, sanitary, temporary residence for approximately 180 homeless men; preparing and serving three meals per day and supplying clothing and personal care items as needed. Hope house rescue mission strives to operate as more than simply an emergency shelter by offering services designed to promote long-term, sustainable life transformation. Case management is ongoing during an individual's stay with the goal of achieving long-term stability. During the year, 10,405 shelter nights and 30,513 meals were provided.
center of hope for women & children: the organization provides a safe, sanitary, temporary place for approximately 250 homeless women and children to stay; preparing and serving three meals per day and supplying clothing and personal care items as needed. Like the men's emergency shelter, the center of hope strives to operate as more than simply an emergency shelter by offering services designed to promote long-term, sustainable life transformation. Case workers assist the individuals and families by developing action plans based on their needs, with the goal of achieving long-term stability. During the year, 12,710 shelter nights and 27,829 meals were provided.
sro housing project: this is an 11-unit hud funded transitional housing program designed to give homeless men an opportunity for residential stability, increased skill level, and or income and greater self- determination. The housing project has been used to aid approximately 20 formerly homelessmen (recovering from addictions to drugs and alcohol) stabilize their lives and become self-reliant, productive members of society.
All I can say is I have read about them very carefully, emailed and written snail mail back and forth with them more than once, and have only seen the most amazing, incredibly hard working and dedicated group of people who serve those who need it most.
I have no connection to Hope House other than I give money regularly and I stand by these people. In fact, they are not even in my town. I live about an hour drive away in a different town, but have felt very drawn to support these good people. They invited me to have lunch with them so I can meet them and see the facilities for myself, and I expect to do so this summer.
I am very tired and cannot stay writing anymore now, but just know that I am definitely no dummy and know some things about people and organizations. Hope House is committed to the people who need them, and to the teachngs and values received from our Lord Jesus. They work with individuals, families, men, women, kids. Their focus is to help people get back into a productive, self-sufficient, honest, addiction free life. I cannot say enough good about them. I will continue to support them with cash for as long as I can - then I hope to volunteer time in whatever way they can use me. I am a systems analyst, so if they can't use me for that I will sweep their floors and clean their bathrooms if they would like.
