HOPE assists an average 65 to 70 men annually, and 80% of those who complete their transition program make a successful transition, defined as maintaining employment and living independently for a period of one year after leaving HOPE.
The majority of the nation’s homeless are men. Sixty four percent of adults who used emergency shelters or transitional housing last year were men. Contrary to much popular opinion, the number one reason for homelessness among men in the past three years has been the sudden loss of a job and the subsequent inability to pay the bills (qtd in League 2014).

HOPE Center (pictured in the video above) is the main facility where new Men of HOPE enter and live for approximately 90 days before they transition out into their new homes and independent living.
HOPE Extension opened in January of 2016 and is a second stage facility where Men who are well on their way toward transition but need more time live until they can successfully transition.
