Project Hope for the Homeless operates four major programs:

  1. Adult Shelter– This wing is dedicated to men and women experiencing homelessness. The shelter opens up nightly from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. It also provides outside resources for areas including but not limited to budgeting, housing, job skills, mental health assistance and drug addiction.
  2. Aftercare – A member of Project Hope for the Homeless’ staff provides support to former guests weekly via phone and in-person visits. This ongoing contact allows us to help our guests maintain success with budgeting, healthy eating, addiction issues and much more.
  3. Families Moving Forward – A separate wing of the facility designated for men and women with children, that provides a nurturing environment for children to receive the care and guidance they need. It is open from 2 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. It also provides outside resources for parents in areas including but not limited to budgeting, housing, job skills, mental health assistance and drug addiction.
  4. Senior Care – Our Senior Care program was launched in May 2019 and has a 3-unit transitional home offsite called Hope House for people who are age 62 and older. The Senior Care program allows up to three guests at a time to stay for up to three months on a 24/7 basis as they work with our staff to find a stable, safe, and more permanent housing situation.
