Making An Impact In Milwaukee

Hope House is a non-profit homeless shelter, rapid re-housing facility, and permanent supportive housing provider.

Hope House was originally created in 1987 by five local churches to address homelessness on Milwaukee’s south side; over the years Hope House has evolved into a respected shelter known for providing support, services and a chance at a brighter future for families. Acting as a true community center, Hope House offers numerous programs and activities to assist men, women and children struggling with homelessness.
