Housing Hope Programs
Tomorrow's Hope Childcare Center is specifically designed to meet the unique and critical needs of homeless children and those at risk of homelessness. Attending children reside in emergency shelters and transitional housing throughout the local community. It is licensed with 112 slots for children age 4 weeks to 12 years and provides transportation, health services, essential nutrition, school readiness preparation and loving, consistent emotional support.
The College of Hope is an innovative program created to meet the life skill needs of adults in low-income families. Operated in collaboration with other community service providers, it offers 41 classes in the core curriculum areas of Economic Well-Being, Family Life, Health and Wellness and Housing Expertise. Classes are taught in the evenings; transportation, a family meal and childcare are provided to facilitate participation.
The Teen Parent program serves pregnant and parenting teens and young mothers, ages 16 to 24, and their children, living at New Century Village in Everett. These clients need specialized help to realize their potential while learning to care for their babies. New Century Village provides a stable, safe environment that helps them learn new skills, create healthy attitudes and habits, learn to care for their children, secure a diploma or GED, and master household and budget management skills.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Housing Hope's unique and innovative "Service-Enriched Housing Continuum" has received local, regional and national recognition for providing safe, decent and affordable housing wrapped in supportive services that help families regain stability and grow in self sufficiency. Every year, nearly 90% of the homeless families who enter our program go on to obtain stable housing, thus positioning themselves for a brighter, stronger, healthier future.
Housing Hope relies on the generous investment of the community to provide a comprehensive array of critical services for our residents, including case management. Case Managers help these families chart a course for success, providing one-on-one support and guidance. They also provide connections, as appropriate, with our other services, including employment counseling, high-quality childcare and other child development services, and the College of Hope, our comprehensive program of adult life skills education classes.
