Founded in 1907, Star of Hope is a Christ-centered community dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless men, women and their children. Positive life changes are encouraged through structured programs which focus on spiritual growth, education, employment, life management and recovery from substance abuse. On any given day, there are approximately one thousand homeless men, women and children being helped at the Men's Development Center, the Women and Family Emergency Shelter, the Transitional Living Center for Women & Families and Extended Services programs. The key to the success of Star of Hope Mission is its comprehensive approach to addressing the diverse issues, both immediate and long term, that impact homeless individuals and families. In 2015, Star of Hope provided 603,949 meals and 352,001 nights lodging for 7,868 first time guests; 23% of those guests were children.

This Fund was established to focus on immediate basic needs care, as well as the long-term requirements of the youngest and most vulnerable clients residing in our family centers. Essential services include food, clothing, shelter, counseling, health care, and educational support. The Fund supports immunizations, child care, after-school and enrichment programs, homework help, and mentoring. The supportive programs improve health and well-being as well as self-esteem and confidence.
In 08/17, we opened the Women and Family Development Center at Cornerstone Community®. We implemented a Case Management-based program called New Pathways, where each client is assigned a Case Manager upon entrance, who then guides them through the needed services and classes to enable self-sufficiency and independent living. The longer our clients are here, the greater chance they have to transition to independence!
