In 1990, the Area Rescue Mission was formed using an abandoned school building as shelter from the elements. In 2006, the name was changed to House of Hope for Men.

Hundreds of men have walked through the doors since that time. Each man's story is different, yet they all had one thing in common: they were without a place to lay their heads.

Fathers and brothers; sons and uncles; nephews and husbands are part of this unique brotherhood of men. Each is offered the soothing balm of God's salvation. Some choose not to accept the gift, but far more have heeded His call, and looked to Him to direct their paths.
