What started as a neighborhood response to a neighborhood issue, has expanded its service area to include all of Long Island, New England and beyond. Alumni have come from Florida, California, Missouri, Illinois, Colorado, Arizona and as far away as Canada, Australia, Mexico, Germany, Guatemala, El Salvador, India, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Now in its 40th year, Hope House Ministries began as a 10-bed facility providing compassionate crisis intervention for young men aged 16 to 21 and has expanded to a multi-faceted human service agency encompassing housing, counseling and educational assistance for individuals and families in crisis.
Local courts, juvenile programs, law enforcement, health care facilities, families, schools, businesses and the hundreds of thousands of people this agency has served over the past 40 years attest to the many ways in which the community has come to rely on the competent and compassionate care provided by Hope House Ministries to those in need.
No matter the crisis, be it homelessness, addiction, juvenile delinquency, high school drop outs, teen pregnancy, evictions, domestic violence or sexual abuse, Hope House Ministries, with limited resources, continues to offer help where it is most needed. Services and programs are open to anyone in need, no matter their race, ethnicity, social-economic status, sexual orientation, age, physical ability or language and all services are offered free of charge.
