New Hope Family Shelter

New Hope Family Shelter is our community's response to a need established as a priority at the 2010 Homelessness Summit. New Hope House is the only emergency shelter in Monroe County that keeps homeless families together -- a critical aspect of any strategy to address the problems that lead to homelessness.

New Hope Family Shelter's mission is to provide temporary shelter for homeless families in Bloomington and Monroe County and, in collaboration with other agencies, to help those families regain housing by addressing the problems that led to homelessness. The main shelter, New Hope House, provides accommodation for three families for up to 90 days while our case manager and director works with those families in daily contact and weekly conferences.

Moms and dads who are homeless have adult problems that are addressed by the New Hope Plan: case management plus shelter. Case management means developing strategies for adults to find stability - both in housing and employment. For children case management means helping them navigate the complexity of living in poverty.
