Help end homelessness... one life at a time!

Welcome to Star of Hope Mission

Hope Lives Here

 

I can’t show you photos of the nearly 1,200 men, women and children who will call Star of Hope “home” tonight...but as you study the following faces, remember this:

Every smile you see was put there by someone like you who, moved by compassion, gave to support our comprehensive programs for daily care and long-term solutions to homelessness.

I hope you'll also visit the Star of Hope Video Channel to hear some of the residents share their inspiring stories in their own words.

Every day there are 1,200 reasons for you to partner with us and transform lives with hope. Thank you for considering how you can get involved!

Hank Rush, President & CEO
