Project Hope of Marion County, Inc. is a faith based, supportive and transitional housing program – serving women with children in Marion County. Project Hope was founded in 2007 by a group of concerned and committed citizens who shared a goal of ending homelessness for women and children.
Project Hope offers safe and affordable housing with the goal of assisting the women towards becoming self sufficient. Project Hope believes in providing a “hand up versus a hand out.” Through intensive case management, weekly life skills classes, and individual responsibility plans – participants are able to make substantial changes in their lives and are encouraged to embrace who God has called them to be.
Our program is designed for women who are willing and ready to make life changes for themselves and their children. Our program is designed to be a 12-18 month program where participants and their children reside in fully furnished, 2 bedroom/2 bathroom units that offer them a place to call “home.” In the fall of 2021, we are currently housing 22 families in our program – who without the support of our very generous community, would be homeless. This endowment ensures Project Hope can continue their mission for years to come!
