New Hope Center was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 1992 and opened the men's location on May 1st of that year. Three family locations (single family dwellings) were added over the following years, and on May 13th, 2013 the women's location opened its doors to single women and women with children. 

We are one of only two organizations in all of northern Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula, that is able to keep families together while they are in a center. Our facilities provide a total of 38 beds. In the fiscal year 2017-2018 we provided 6,712 bed nights (one bed night = a bed to sleep in, 2 meals, a hot shower, and clean clothes).

About Us 

New Hope Center was established in 1992 though a collaboration of the Cadillac Area Ministers Assocation and Mercy Hospital. Within a few years, New Hope grew from serving only homeless men to providing for families in need  through our three family facilities. By a miracle of God's grace, we opened our new women's facility on May 13, 2013. These locations provide the men, women, and families a safe place to improve their circumstances, enabling them to move on to support themselves and their families and live independently again. 

" New Hope Center helped me start a new life. It did exactly what its name implies. It gave me new hope for the future. Two weeks after coming to the center I found a permanent, full-time job. All the staff and voluneeters with friendly and helpful by being there with their concern and caring for a total stranger. I hate to think of what might have happened to my family without the help of the New Hope Center. Because of their willingness to help my family and I are together, have an income, and are putting our life back together."
