Hope Gospel Mission currently serves the lost, homeless, hungry, hurting, abused and the addicted men and women of western Wisconsin. Unfortunately, the number of men and women seeking assistance continues to increase each year. Homelessness is also affecting children in our area. In fact, recent data shows the Eau Claire School District classified 360 students as homeless and the Chippewa Falls School District classified an additional 70 students as homeless. Sadly, each month the Mission turns away three to four mothers with children because we are not able to care for children in our existing facilities.
Hope Gospel Mission is distinctly qualified to address the needs of the poor, homeless and addicted. No other organization in our community or area offers such a comprehensive rehabilitation program - completely free of charge for the men and women enrolled. Our unique approach applies faith-based principles to combat homelessness, poverty and addiction. We have developed caring and calculated strategies to rescue, rebuild and renew lives.
The leadership of Hope Gospel Mission believes it must be prepared for the present and future needs of homeless men and women as well as women with children. Campaign For Hope is designed to raise $6.4 million to build a new men's facility and purchase a facility to begin serving women with children.
