Who We Are
H.O.P.E Ministries Inc. has been in operation since 1993. Locally known as HOPE Family shelters, we have been able to shelter over 190 people over the last year. Having a roof over your head is something so many take for granted and we are in a position to provide this and many other services to our residents. Potential residents understand that to be successful in their future independence, they have to take responsibility in meeting their individual needs and making the most of what we offer them. Essentially our goal is to effectively reduce homelessness in our community by providing services to the homeless that will create residentially independent individuals. We do not offer handouts, we offer a hand up.
This program is a low demand approach in a supportive housing environment. With individual and group counseling, residents are equipped with tools that help them become proactive in restoring their spiritual, emotional, occupational, legal, financial, medical, and recovery health. These individual treatment plans cultivate self-respect, self-reliance, and spiritual direction in order to strengthen families and empower success. Individual intakes are conducted by staff and our licensed therapist. Case managers are then assigned to the clients and families who work to identify their needs and priorities. Resources are reviewed and referrals are given to all applicable local service programs so that the needs we cannot meet are met by other supportive agencies. The goal is to “graduate” our resident within a 30 to 90 day time period with a special focus given to those required life skills that will help clients obtain occupational and residential independence.
