Shelter & Housing


Hope Mission has been helping people leave the streets and discover a place they can call home for over 80 years. We provide emergency shelter for those who need a safe, dry, warm place to get a good night’s sleep. Our ultimate goal is to help individuals find a home of their own.

Recovery & Spiritual Care


For men struggling with addiction, we provide a 12-Step year long recovery community called Breakout. Our hope is rooted in the life-changing power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and from that source we seek to meet not only the physical needs of our guests, but spiritual needs as well.
