• Street outreach for those who have not visited the Hope Center
Our Stories :: YOur Stories
The greatest part of the Hope Center process is watching the “ah-ha!” moment when a client can see the light and can feel hopeful again. Their stories are stories of real-life hurts, tragedy, self-reflection, growth and finally, a new kind of life.

Nights of Lodging
Addiction, homelessness and mental illness not only affect the person who is battling them. They have a ripple effect. Each person suffering has a network of family and friends who are in varying forms of distress along with them. Consequently, when Hope Center programs help one person, we are touching many lives including our clients’ children, spouses, parents, brothers, sisters, and friends.
