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 client’s children, spouses, parents, brothers, sisters, and friends.
