Lives Rebuilt

Helping Rebuild Lives Since 1984


Hospitality House exists to offer a place where men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness can come to begin the process of rebuilding their lives. We take a one-on-one, trauma-informed approach with each person. Upon entering, each client is paired with a Service Coordinator/Social Worker and together they explore the journey that led the client to Hospitality House. The client then begins work on their individual goal plan for overcoming barriers and moving into stable housing. 


A few of our clients have chosen to share their stories.

Rebuilding Lives: Mitch

Mitch came to Hospitality House when he was at his lowest point. He had lost everything due to his addiction and had nowhere to go. He utilized the services offered at Hospitality House and did indeed rebuild his life. He beat his addiction, moved into permanent housing and reconnected with family. He even became a volunteer in the kitchen at Hospitality House. Sadly, Mitch was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in late 2009 and lost his battle in April 2010.
