Hope starts with a warm and safe home and the opportunity to rebuild lives. Our
efforts are aimed at moving people toward self-sufficient living and teaching them
to do for themselves rather than depend on others for help. Read more
Our programs include parenting and self-sufficiency classes,
budgeting, and basic instruction in life skills such as self-esteem building, empowerment,
health and nutrition, along with academic skills enhancement and GED preparation.
In order to break the cycle of homelessness, children need love, structure, stability
and education. We provide creative play therapies, self-esteem building groups,
K-12 after-school tutoring and hugs and praise whenever needed. Read more
