Shelter is temporary, and our goal is to quickly get you on a pathway to housing so you can move into your own space as soon as possible.
We prioritize shelter on vulnerability and need.
HOPE is a proud member of Community Alliance Partners (CAP), a Continuum of Care made up of over 40 organizations and allies using a Housing First approach to house and provide follow-up services to our houseless neighbors islandwide.
CAP implemented a Coordinated Entry System (CES) in 2017. This ensures that those who need housing the most receive the first available units. A CES is mandated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and it streamlines the processes for assessing and offering homeless programs and housing. The CES also provides information about service needs and gaps to help communities plan their assistance and identify needed resources.
“Without [HOPE Services], we wouldn’t be where we’re at today...I thank them from the bottom of my heart”
