Corpus Christi Hope House, Inc. was founded in 1986 when community members began a non-profit charitable organization to provide shelter, support and assistance for women who were homeless and faced with a crisis pregnancy situation. Hope House expanded throughout the years, and currently has four (4) shelter buildings with private bedrooms for residents and a 7,500 square-foot office, classroom and resource building to provide assistance to low income women and families of our community. We will be able to house up to 23 women and their dependent children, upon completion of our expansion project in the summer of 2020.
Hope House provides emergency shelter, transitional housing, support, life-skills training, food, clothing, counseling, educational and medical assistance to families, women, their dependent children and newborn babies who seek an escape from homelessness, addiction, domestic violence, poverty or a crisis pregnancy situation. Our ministry empowers our clients by giving them the opportunity to accept responsibility, to care for their children, further their education, obtain employment, permanent housing and become productive, self-sufficient members of our community through the support of our staff, benefactors and volunteers.
