Description: New Hope Center's mission is to provide a home of hope and direction for those who find themselves in life altering circumstances from either poor choices or life situations beyond their control. We strive to instill self-respect and dignity by ministering to the whole person: emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
In addition to meeting the basic needs of food and shelter, the emphasis of the Transitional or long-term program has been on implementing individualized programming that addresses the issues that led each resident to homelessness.
Several days after settling in at the shelter, a new resident is interviewed by the shelter team.
We assess each one's strengths, needs and insight into their particular situation.
NHC Case Management staff creates 'schedule' of activities that provides meaningful input into return to successful, independent living.
We also assist with Social Security, food stamp and Medicaid referrals and getting medications and birth certificates. Our case manager coordinates with all service agencies like MHMR, STAR, Paris Counseling or Health and Human Services. Children are referred for counseling if needed, and all parents are expected to attend parenting classes. Because we are a faith-based program, residents are expected to participate in morning devotionals and at least one church service of their choice a week.
Donation Requests by New Hope Center of Paris: We accept various donations of hygiene items, clothing, and cleaning supplies for the shelter along with other various needs. We also have a non-profit thrift store that helps fund the shelter. All items (except furniture) are accepted for the store.
