The Heart of the Hope for Families Center is Their Shelter.
Safe and secure, warm and stable, the Hope for Families Center (HFC) provides the refuge and consistency homeless families need to get back on their feet.
Their 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.
Their shelter delivers the first vital component that homeless families need, a home.

The Hope for Families Center is designed not just to be a place to stay, but to provide a structured program that teaches families how to set expectations of themselves that they can carry into the future.”
