Introducing A Story of Hope

We're excited to debut a new short-film that tells the story of the work we do and the lives we touch at Hope House. Thank you to Becky Steimle and John-Paul Greco for their pro-bono work on this project. We encourage you to share this video with your friends and family to help them learn about our mission.

Hope House would like to thank the TJX Foundation for their continued support of the Shining Stars Program. The Foundation (which is affiliated with T.J. Maxx clothing stores) has been providing grants to Hope House since 2008, and we thank them for their recent donation of $5,000. It will go a long way toward educating our children for a brighter future.

It is the mission of Hope House to end homelessness and create healthy communities.

Hope House is a non-profit emergency homeless shelter and rapid rehousing facility as well as a true community center located in the near south side of Milwaukee. Opened in 1987, Hope House was created to provide a safe, temporary refuge for people needing a place to sleep. Over the years, Hope House has evolved into a complete provider of services for homeless and low income individuals. In addition to residential services, Hope House provides community outreach to individuals needing health care, food distribution, financial assistance, and educational opportunities for adults and children. Hope House provides services that aim to end homelessness and create healthy communities.
