WHO WE ARE

Across our region on any given day, there are as many as 2,000 homeless children, youth and families, and up to 2,500 children in protective custody in the foster care system. Though their circumstances are unique the need for a supportive community in undeniable. Hopelessness and despair are far greater than the immediate, visible effects.

With primary needs met, we equip our children, youth and families with the tools they need to succeed, aiming to educate and enrich their lives and encourage them to reach their full potential.

OUR MISSION

Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus is dedicated to providing a stable and loving family environment for children, youth and families who are hurting. We are committed to meeting desperate needs in our community by sharing God’s love and placing hope in their lives—one child, youth, and family at a time.

OUR VISION

With regard to children, youth and families entrusted to our care, we strive to  foster hope rather than despair, potential rather than limitations, healing rather than hurting, belonging rather than isolation and what the future can be, rather than what the past has been.

OUR PURPOSE

We offer a full continuum of care for those in need with programs and services specializing in: family outreach and intervention, maternity care, human trafficking education and prevention for the community, recovery for victims of domestic minor sex and labor trafficking, affordable transitional housing and  supportive services for young adults, housing and support for homeless families, foster care recruitment, hope and healing opportunities for children, youth and families throughout our region.
