Here to serve our community.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
New Hope for Families helps families impacted by homelessness gain and maintain stable housing and provides accredited, early childhood development aimed at breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
New Hope for Families is the only family emergency housing recovery agency for whole families that serves primarily Monroe County. We operate two life-changing programs in Bloomington, Indiana:
The Nest offers academic, emotional and social support services to children of the families we serve.
The Roof offers short-term accommodation as our case managers work with our families.
THE NEED IS GREAT
South Central Indiana is currently experiencing a homeless crisis fueled by affordable housing/rental shortages in Monroe County. In 2016, there were 221 families who experienced homelessness either in an emergency shelter or on our streets. New Hope is a community leader in supporting these families through the crisis of homelessness, and we do that by:
Offering emergency shelter and support services (The Roof)
Providing early childhood care and education (The Nest)
New Hope is the only temporary, emergency housing service for whole, intact homeless families in Monroe County. We've set the bar higher and do whatever it takes by:
Keeping families together
Working with families to meet their housing and childcare needs
Prioritizing the needs of even the youngest in the family
Maintaining the flexibility to meet families where they are and provide customized support and intervention services
Collaborating with other agencies to ensure the best use of community resources
Empowering children to break the cycles of homelessness and poverty
