House of Hope CDC has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1989. From the grass roots philosophies of a small neighborhood group of socially minded individuals, a shelter unlike any other was born. The organization was built on the premise of meeting people where they are, literally and figuratively, by providing safe and stable housing with client-centered services that empower and encourage each individual to reach their fullest potential.
Since our modest beginning, House of Hope CDC has grown into a highly effective, outcome-oriented organization that today buys, builds, renovates and/or currently manages 18 properties. These include 116 shelter beds, 35 permanent supportive housing units, 6 home ownerships and 6 units that are in various stages of development. In 23 years of service to our community House of Hope CDC has been “home” for thousands of homeless adults and families with children.
