The Hope Center at House of Hope Green Bay is aimed at ending youth homelessness in our area. Hope Center staff provide a safe shelter for minors and parenting youth with their children. Programs empower youth experiencing homelessness to grow, thrive, develop supportive connections, build skills, gain stability, and continue their education.
All youth experiencing homelessness can be referred to the Hope Center for help with homeless resolution and safety.
Eligibility for overnight shelter stay at Hope Center:
Runaway and homeless youth ages 0-17 who identify as female.
Runaway and homeless parenting youth under age 18 who identify as female and their children of any gender.
We will need to obtain permission from a parent/guardian/legal custodian.
Every child deserves to know what it feels like to have a home. Utilizing a holistic two-generation approach, the Hope Center will break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
In collaboration with New Community Clinic, Foundations Health and Wholeness, Family Services of N.E.W., Wisconsin Association for Homeless and Runaway Services, and Boys and Girls Club of the Fox Valley, among others, youth in crisis will have access to a cohesive community system and continuum of services that will provide upstream homelessness prevention services to break the cycle of homelessness.
