We have all experienced a struggle in life where we had to rely on an outside resource to see us through our time of hardship; unemployment, house hunting, financial struggles, or legal concerns. HOPE strives to be the connector between needed resources for individuals the homeless community in Oakland County and beyond. However, sometimes there can be a gap between service providers and those in need. Additionally, individuals are not always aware of the services available to them, in their time of need. Having someone assisting in making these connections in times of crisis and hardship are important, which is why HOPE seeks to advocate for our clients at the grass roots and the systemic level.
HOPE participates in the Oakland County ID Taskforce, to help alleviate barriers to obtaining State Identification.
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, most of our guests now have health insurance, HOPE strives to advocate for our guests by filing gaps in service and creating necessary programs in collaboration with our community partners.
