HOPES Center recognizes the worth and dignity of each person and helps people move out of homelessness through:


Street Outreach

Street outreach teams go out at night to locate, engage with, and assist people who are living in places not meant for human habitation, such as parks, benches, sidewalks, woods, vehicles, abandoned buildings and other locations. The goal is to help people move from the streets into shelter and housing. 


Mental Health

The PATH program (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) helps people who are homeless (or at risk of homelessness) and who have a serious mental illness. It provides supportive services to help them recover the fullness of life and end their homelessness. 



HOPES Center's Rapid Rehousing program provides housing assistance for people who are experiencing homeless and live in shelter or have street outreach contact in places not meant for human habitation. HOPES participates in the Homelessness and Housing Alliance's coordinated entry program, which ends people's homelessness by linking them to housing opportunities. 




HOPES was founded in 2008 as a sponsored ministry of the Racine Dominicans. As a sponsored ministry, HOPES is an extension of the Racine Dominican ministry: Committed to Truth, Compelled to Justice.
