Acres of Hope is a spiritually based renewal center serving homeless women with children by providing them with a home and an environment of structured programming. Located in the beautiful Sierra Foothills, Acres of Hope’s unique approach allows residents to live onsite for up to two years while staff and volunteers invest heavily in their lives by providing encouragement, practical life-skills training, job skills, mentoring and spiritual direction.
Recidivism rates among the homeless are high and they want to reduce re-occurring homelessness through a balanced approach that addresses the needs of the whole person. A balanced approach looks at the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the residents and includes a heart of acceptance with accountability, and extending grace with guidance.
Without a balanced approach, it is only a matter of time before negative thought patterns and habits rise to the surface and reverse any progress made. As a result, Acres of Hope are committed to the healing process of each individual that will support their renewal process from the inside out.
The vision of Acres of Hope is to provide a safe family environment and a healthy living program for women with children that sets the foundation of change and breaks the cycle of homelessness.
