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 send a special word of thanks to the amazing Greater Milwaukee Foundation for their commitment to supporting our Surgeon’s Quarters SRO which houses single people (with a preference for veterans) at the VA Grounds. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation stands with Hope House in the national effort to end homelessness among veterans. 

And if that’s not enough reason to salute them, they also are the driving force behind our annual Match Day! We are so happy that Greater Milwaukee Foundation takes the time and effort to organize Match Day. Through the generous, passionate support of our donors, and the planning and implementation from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Hope House raised more money than any previous year on Match Day in March 2015. Thank you Greater Milwaukee Foundation! 

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.
