We are proud to announce that we received a great report card! As you can see, below, it indicates that HOPE was more effective than the average shelter in the state. It isn’t a competition, but… we are proud of the outcomes:
Measure Rates HOPE Average Length of stay. 43 days 20 days Positive Destination 44.7% 14.43% Recidivism Rate 11.22%* 34.35%
This means that HOPE has engaged people in need for twice as long as the average shelter and that the results were significantly better. HOPE gets people into appropriate housing 3-times the rate of other shelters. HOPE guests who have been appropriately housed are 3-times more likely to stay housed.
*Recidivism Rate of 11.22% is unusually high for HOPE. This was due to an apartment fire that left several previous guests without a home, again. The normal rate is about 5%. So, typically, HOPE guests are 6-times more likely to stay housed. )
HOPE is an effective shelter. We partner with more service providers to achieve powerful results. We help guest obtain all their needed documents and we bring service providers into the shelter for meetings – rather than hoping guests will find an office and the transportation to get there on time.
