Description: HOPE provides safe and judgment-free shelter, innovative programs and public advocacy to end homelessness

HOPE's  adult shelter is open from 5 PM until 9 AM providing dinner, triage healthcare, showers, overnight shelter and access to resources that can be a pathway out of homelessness. 

HOPE is a low barrier shelter, meaning that we do not require ID documents, we do not require sobriety (substances may not be brought onto the HOPE property) and no transportation barrier (because we bring most service-providers to the shelter).

Each year, more than 250 HOPE guests exit the shelter to a place they can call home — and keep as their home.

which means that  while we have a zero tolerance for bringing drugs and/or alcohol on the premises, sobriety is not a condition for entry to the shelter.  We do, however, expect and strictly enforce that shelter guests will follow staff directions and exhibit good behavior.
No previous registration is needed to spend the night at HOPE.

Volunteers Requests by HOPE Hospitality & Warming Center: Volunteers are needed to provide dinner and servers. We are also looking for potential board members as well as those to join our fundraising committee. Please call Elizabeth Kelly at 248 812 9276 for more information or email at ekelly@hopewarmingpontiac.org
