This Easter
hope begins with a meal.
How We Serve
People Experiencing Homelessness

Whether it’s the loss of a job or the rising cost of housing, homelessness has complicated causes and devastating effects on men, women and families in our community.

Being homeless often means feeling hopeless, but we believe we can change this situation for our homeless friends and neighbors by meeting them at their physical and spiritual points of need. We follow Jesus’ example by walking alongside the people we serve through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, and community outreach.


Join Pathways of Hope

Give monthly and provide an ongoing source of shelter, recovery and counseling as homeless neighbors journey toward more hopeful lives.
