What We Know
More than half a million people in the United States are homeless. To make matters worse, people over 65 are the fastest-growing age group.
- The number of homeless people in the U.S. has gone up every year for the past four years
- 33 % percent of all homeless men are veterans
While insufficient income and lack of affordable housing are the leading causes of homelessness, there are many reasons that cause people to become displaced. Joblessness, domestic violence, substance abuse issues—even lack of mental health services can land already marginalized communities in dire straits.
- By 2030, the amount of homeless seniors is expected to triple
- Veterans account for 11% of homeless adults
For seniors and servicemen already struggling to make ends meet, an illness or accident can trigger a downward spiral into homelessness. In fact, homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked.
More than providing solutions to America's most pressing social problems, transitional housing programs offer resident's a source of hope. These living facilities couple low cost, temporary housing with support services that address physical and mental health, substance abuse, child care, employment training, and more.
Residents Can Expect:
- Reduced rates of relapse resulting from continued support and treatment
- Improved economic self-sufficiency and independence
- Job placement assistance
- Educational & vocational training
How Hope's Response Helps
At Hope's Response, we believe that everyone—regardless of socio-economic status, deserves access to safe, decent, stable housing.
Our mission is to develop and create diverse, vibrant, affordable housing communities for seniors, veterans, families, and individuals by implementing valuable research, financing options, and using innovative green technologies that are safe, self-sustaining, and promote efficiency.
For Hope’s Response our programs and affordable housing campuses, are OUR RESPONSE to fighting homelessness, and the housing crisis affecting our communities.
Hopes Response believes that no one in need should be left behind, so we developed a few service programs to give back to those who need it most.
