Hope House and Harbor Hall

Combatting homelessness with community

“Our goal is to positively impact individuals by offering love and hope to those struggling with homelessness. Hope House and Harbor Hall have become a place of healing from past traumas and experiences, a place where people are given an opportunity to transform into the men and women that God created them to be. It has become a community where people come to thrive”.

Hope House

Hope House opened for women and children in June of 2011. For women and women and children experiencing homelessness, our housing program uses a holistic approach to encourage personal development and life transformation. We do this by fostering growth in areas of life that support sustainability:

  • Structure and Accountability (daily schedules, house rules, curfew, weekly house meetings, weekly volunteering, house chores)
  • Life Skills Classes (relational skills, communication, establishing good boundaries, and faith development)
  • Money Management Classes & Mentoring
  • Job Readiness Training

Housing Ministry Collaborative

Creating pathways to sustainable housing

The Housing Ministry Collaborative (HMC) of Love in Action combines the support of local churches, GHACF, and the community. The focus of HMC is to prevent homelessness and to keep families safely in their homes with light, heat, and the ability to prepare meals. The goal is to help them see how to be sustainable going into the future by working with an established budget and education through EmpowerU classes like Financial Fitness.

The HMC assists families with housing-related costs, such as rent, mortgage, utilities – gas, propane, electric, and water. HMC seeks to help families that, once they pass the current setback, will be in a sustainable position going forward.

Homelessness may be prevented when families with established homes are helped over difficulties that are just a moment-in-time.

We are extremely thankful for our Housing Ministry Collaborative partners:

Providence Place

The ability to secure affordable housing is a large burden for many individuals and families, when combined with a need for accessibility, this challenge can be daunting.

Thanks to our generous community, Love in Action has established Providence Place. This facility provides eight income-based units, four of these units are completely accessible for those living with physical disabilities.
