WHAT WE DO
CRISIS SERVICES THAT LEAD TO TRUE CHANGE.
Our Crisis Resolution programs empower those facing homelessness, addiction, and food insecurity. Through active participation, we provide dignified pathways to address essential needs such as food and clothing. This transformative approach includes participents partnering with The Hope Center for task such as cooking, sorting clothes, and serving our community.
This model ensures we focus on maintaining dignity while addressing immediate needs, guiding individuals towards better opportunities. These challenges catalyze change, breaking the cycle of poverty's grip and reigniting self-worth. This process rewrites negative internal narratives that fuel the cycle of poverty.

COMMITTED TO FILLING
PLATES RATHER THAN LANDFILLS.
Through our steadfast commitment to reducing food waste, we've forged impactful partnerships with local eateries and retailers via Marked For Life. These collaborative efforts have yielded consistent food rescues, channeling nourishment to stock our crisis center pantry. What's more, this life-saving resource extends its reach to benefit seven other organizations within our county.
