Operation HOPE-Vista provides a safe environment for homeless families with children and single women to help support rebuilding lives and regaining hope. The shelter offers a clean, warm, and welcoming setting; including individual family sleep rooms, a dorm room for single women, common areas, courtyard, and secure play for children. The family sleep rooms encourage a stable family dynamic, enhancing the ability to recover self-sufficiency.
The shelter accommodates forty-five adults and children - the number of children generally outnumber the adults. In addition to sleep areas, there are common dining and lounge facilities, computer banks, courtyard, playground, as well as laundry and shower facilities. All clients, as part of the program, work onsite with case managers to provide foundation and guidance for the work needed to end their homelessness. The outcome for our families is to leave with a housing plan, and the tools for self-sufficiency.
Program Highlights Include:
A safe and supportive drug and alcohol-free environment.
Hot nutritious dinners, breakfast and lunch supplies.
Specialized and personalized case management plans with attainable self-sufficiency goals
Life skills classes including responsible budgeting and credit recovery, resume building, improved employment skills, healthy relationships, communication, nutrition, and parenting all designed to help promote and sustain healthy new life habits.
Homework Club and enrichment activities for children
