In an effort to reach all who struggle with homelessness and poverty, Hope Gospel Mission adopts the following policy on non-discrimination:
Hope Gospel Mission accepts male and female residents to its homes who are of the age of maturity (18 years or older). Clients must be drug and alcohol free at time of intake and be willing to follow the home's policies.
Given this entrance criteria, Hope Gospel Mission accepts all walk-in residents regardless of 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.
