OUr Mission

Hope Street is the Greenhouse for People on 26th and Capitol.

We help broken men, women and children cultivate hope. We protect from outside elements but most importantly we grow together in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Hope Street is home to about 40 Men, Women, and Children whose lives have been profoundly affected by the toxic environment they grew up in, their own poor choices, or

drug and alcohol abuse.

Empowered by the active Grace of Christ, the staff, volunteers and members cultivate a nurturing community in which we can live, learn and develop new habits that help people flourish.

Our values:

Cultivate hope:

A greenhouse is an environment where growth can happen. We see the hope of growth being cultivated by a mutual respect that comes from an intrinsic, divine dignity. We are all, despite our individual, cultural, and many other brokenness’ created in the image of God and therefore equally invaluable. To that end as adults we will encourage each other, offer suggestions, and give examples of choices and possible consequences or outcomes. In most cases we will not make choices for others, telling them what they “need” to do. Growth comes from making wise choices, but if someone else is making most of the choices for an individual, the chance for growth and lasting transformation in that individual is minimalized or even destroyed.

Ways we Cultivate hope:

  • Disrupt unhealthy patterns and thought-patterns

  • Provide an environment that reinforces inherit dignity

  • Develop and connect with ways we can take care of ourselves

Protect:

A greenhouse is also a place that protects it’s “plants” from outside elements. Toxic relationships, violence, bad thought patterns, evil, unhealthy diets, lack of exercise, drugs, alcohol, are many of the norms we see in the culture right outside our doors. We refuse to allow these and other poisons in our Greenhouse for People because we know they could kill any of us. We all need this protection.

Ways we protect:

  • We offer a physically safe place to live. We have a locked building with a security system.

  • We do random drug/alcohol testing

Build community:

Our community is led by an Individual who delights in us, even and especially in our weakness. Jesus is the source of our hope, joy, and peace. Each of us as His image bearers have the choice to allow Him, specifically His love for us change us into even more and more of His likeness. As we receive and glory in this state of belovedness He becomes our beloved as well! In and through this communion we will love ourselves in reverence of Him and quite naturally we would love others as we see His glory in others. It is only in this community we can truly flourish.

Ways we grow together:

  • Develop new support systems

  • Learn how to be in healthy relationships with others and yourself

  • Provide opportunities to come together as a community through classes, Community Meeting and living in close proximity to one another.

Our vision:

We envision a movement in the city where broken men, women and children are being set free to live, learn and develop new habits that help all people flourish.
