In an effort to reach all who struggle with addiction, homelessness and poverty, Hope Gospel Mission has the following policy on non-discrimination:
Hope Gospel Mission accepts single adults to its shelters who are of the age of majority (18 years or older) and mothers with children up to the age of ten. Residents must be drug and alcohol free at time of intake and be willing to follow the shelter’s policies. Given these entrance criteria, Hope Gospel Mission does not discriminate based on age, race, sex, creed, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, criminal background* or type or degree of disability. Our facilities are barrier-free, however, residents must be able to work and care for themselves and not require nursing staff.
*In order to maintain a safe environment for residents, staff, and volunteers, admission of individuals with violent or sexual offenses are carefully screened and admission is not guaranteed.
