Hope Center for Women and Children
3333 E. University Ave
Des Moines, IA - 50317
Women's and children's family shelter. Provides 2 year residential and recovery program.
Located at 3333 E. University Avenue in Des Moines, our Hope Family Center includes three eight-bedroom houses which become home to single women and children during their time in our H.E.A.R.T. Recovery Program.
Unlike many shelters which only house homeless women and families up to 30 days, leaving them still in crisis on day 31, our recovery program is an 18- to 24-month program designed help residents break free from the cycle of poverty and addiction so they can go on to become productive members of our community.
