Homes of Hope
Everyone should have somewhere to live where they can feel safe…
Homes of Hope is a volunteer-led program run by the St. Joseph County Family Justice Center. Members of the community identified a need for housing for those who are in abusive relationships but who do not qualify for housing in a traditional shelter.
With the help of volunteers and generous donors, a home was identified, remodeled, furnished, and the Homes of Hope vision was realized!
No one should ever feel trapped in an abusive home. But, family members are sometimes separated when they decide to leave an unhealthy relationship. We want survivors to know they have support in their community.
