Hope Central was founded to address the underlying factors that contribute to chronic homelessness and incarceration. They use a faith-based approach to provide counseling services and individualized support for those in need. Staff and volunteers at Hope Central believe that the most effective way to reduce homelessness in the community and break the cycle of recidivism is to intervene when individuals are most vulnerable. Their education and counseling services target underlying factors associated with chronic homelessness, such as chemical dependence and limited education, so that individuals have the best opportunity to improve their circumstances and move toward a permanent, self-sufficient lifestyle. Counseling services assist with chemical dependence and mental health crises, as well as generational poverty and trauma. This holistic approach to support services ensures that Hope Central brings all individuals closer to independent living.
