Nearly all of the Community of Hope’s clients are homeless. Others are on the brink of homelessness and face living their lives on the streets in a matter of weeks or even days. A catastrophic medical condition, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, a domestic violence situation or a lifetime of physical or emotional abuse, substance abuse, poor physical health, or mental health issues are some of the life-altering crises that contribute to homelessness. Combine these causes with a lack of affordable housing and you have the equation for homelessness.
The Community of Hope provides support through a myriad of services to help people get back on their feet and off the streets. In addition, our case managers provide people with referrals to other agencies where they can obtain help, such as the Veteran’s Administration, the Social Security Administration, mental health care providers, and local income support centers.
