Our Mission: Fighting homelessness and poverty with education, opportunities and hope. Established in 2000, 7 Hills Homeless Center helps homeless individuals and families get the support they need to become self sufficient through:

  • A Day Center, which offers opportunities for food, housing, showers, clothing, information on jobs, phone and internet access, and many other things that we take for granted.
  • Transitional Housing for individuals and families to build life skills and save for permanent housing.
  • Permanent Housing for disabled individuals.
  • The FICASSO Project, a short term project aimed at preventing homelessness, or re-housing homeless families through financial assistance and case management.
  • Project Hope, a 12-18 month mentoring project aimed at assisting homeless or near-homeless youth to “develop resiliency assets that allow cycles of generational poverty and the trauma associated with housing instability to be extinguished, thereby restoring hope to families and communities.”

Thank you to our Volunteers!
