HOPE Calloway offers supportive, transitional housing along with intensive coaching to families and individuals who have been in Calloway County for at least six months.
Our team assists unsheltered people by meeting them where they are. We help them access any treatment or services they need, including supportive housing or rehab.
Our prevention program provides supportive coaching, crisis counseling, information and referral, employment assistance, and financial assistance to individuals who need a temporary boost to move beyond a current crisis and prevent eviction or homelessness.
The Emergency Assistance program connects people to emergency housing as well as provides transportation assistance for essential needs. This could include transport to a shelter for homeless individuals or transportation to work and school.
