Hope Ministries free, Christ-based, long-term life recovery program for single women and mothers with children is designed to address the root causes of homelessness, chronic poverty, addiction and other life challenges, in an effort to equip residents to succeed in life.

30-DAY PROGRAM for women (with or without children) offers shelter with some basic programming, case management, and referral services, provided at no cost. Extensions to a 30-day stay are considered on a case-by-case basis.

LONG-TERM LIFE RECOVERY for women (with or without children) is available to clients who demonstrate they are open, teachable with a willingness to change, and do the hard work of life recovery. Women are offered an opportunity to work on their recovery and life skills for up to 24 months. The program focuses on preparation for independent living, while continuing to work on spiritual growth, recovery, basic life and work skills. Life recovery clients are required to save 75% of any income toward their transition fund.
