A 501(c)3 non-profit organization and sponsored ministry of the Racine Dominicans, HOPES Center of Racine conducts street outreach to people who are living in places not meant for human habitation. Street outreach teams provide for some of the basic needs of people on the streets, offer to take them to shelter, and provide information on services available in Racine.
Through the PATH (Projects for Assistance and Transition from Homelessness) program and mental health counseling, HOPES has a special emphasis on services for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and have a mental illness. The PATH program offers case management that helps link people to essential services.
There are many causes and consequences of homelessness, and each individual’s path into and out of homelessness is unique. HOPES Center helps people leave homelessness behind them through its rapid rehousing program. Rapid rehousing offers rental assistance and supportive services to people who are homeless, with the goal of having them able to maintain their housing after leaving the program.
A vibrant hub in which a diverse and inclusive community helps people eliminate barriers to their further success, HOPES Center seeks a future in which healing and wholeness, peace and justice, and spiritual well-beingflourish. HOPES is thankful for its many partners, supporters and volunteers who make this possible.
