• Health services for those who are sick
• Diagnosis and treatment for those with mental health disorders
• Employment Services for those who can work

• Street and mobile 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.

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.

Services and Programs
If You or a Loved One Need Help

There are many paths that can lead to homelessness and to a feeling of desperation. We understand the feeling of hopelessness, and we understand that many life circumstances can contribute to it. Addiction, mental illness or the loss of a job…we can help you or your loved one to address the issue. We know how to rebuild lives and how to help clients become self-sufficient once again.
