Family Shelter Project Hope
The Family Shelter was one of the first homeless shelter for families in the state and remains a model for its respectful and empowering approach. Approximately 20 women and their children are sheltered each year. The women are assisted to secure permanent housing and to connect with Project Hope's adult education and career development opportunities.
