An environment that is safe, structured and stable to help families reestablish their independence.
THE HEART OF THE HOPE FOR FAMILIES CENTER IS OUR SHELTER.
Safe and secure, warm and stable, our center provides the refuge and consistency homeless families need to get back on their feet. Our risk-free living environment removes any uncertainty of safety – parents and children alike know where their next meal is coming from, they have a warm dry bed to call their own, and they are physically safe from hazards such as substance abuse or domestic violence. Our shelter delivers the first vital component that homeless families need, a home.
AT HOPE FOR FAMILIES SHELTER, WE GUARANTEE OUR RESIDENTS:
A SAFE, CLEAN LIVING ENVIRONMENT
Staffed 24/7/365, all public spaces are monitored for security. In addition, the Center is drug and alcohol free.
Each of our residents is offered three prepared meals a day, including packable lunches for work or school.
Hope for Families Center is stocked to meet the living needs of our residents. Upon admittance, each family is given bedding, personal hygiene products, laundry supplies, and any extra necessities such as diapers. We also work with other community agencies to meet any additional needs our residents may have such as clothing or infant formula.
A PLACE TO CALL HOME
With 21 rooms and four beds per room, our families are given a place to temporarily call their own. Our rooms are equipped with either Jack-and-Jill-style restrooms which are shared with another family or given access to our men’s and women’s restrooms with complete shower facilities.
AMENITIES FOR SUCCESS
Designed with families in mind, our shelter offers a dining area, a library for homework or studying, a meeting room, common living areas, a playground and an outdoor recreation area for residents’ use.
YOUR DONATION OF JUST $220 GIVES A HOMELESS FAMILY A WEEK AT OUR SHELTER, AND A CHANCE FOR HOPE.
It seemed that everything went wrong at once. I got sick and Clarissa lost her job. We had nowhere to turn and desperately needed a roof over our little girl’s head. Hope For Families got us out of our car and into our own room. We had access to food, showers, air conditioning – all those things you take for granted when you have a home. – Justin & Clarissa
