Our Services

Hope House is a 90-day shelter program serving families, couples and single females experiencing homelessness throughout Manitowoc County.  We develop individualized plans to identify and address any barriers that may be getting in the way of living independently.

Homelessness is a never-ending issue in our community. Homelessness is not something someone wishes they could be. It is an issue that is caused by poverty, broken family relationships and multiple circumstances. Everyone's story is unique.

Unfortunately, many communities including ours have seen an unprecedented increase in homelessness due to after effects of the pandemic, a lack of affordable and accessible housing, and closing of businesses affecting people’s jobs and childcare. 

Services Provided:

  • Overnight accommodations (up to 90 days)

  • Weekly case management

  • Referrals to community agencies

  • Supportive listening

  • Job search assistance if needed

  • Life skills education

  • Basic budget counseling

  • Assistance with completion of GED/HSED

  • Access to public transportation & bus passes

  • Home With Hope after care program

Guests must be willing to follow program guidelines. We do not serve victims actively fleeing domestic violence and we do not serve single men as there are other agencies in the community equipped to serve them. Hope House is a dry and sober shelter and doesn’t allow guests to use drugs or alcohol while enrolled in shelter programming. For the safety of all of our guests, we conduct background checks on all adult guests and do not accept anyone with recent history of violence or any history of violence against children.
