Who We Are

Spirit of Hope provides safe emergency shelter for men who are homeless in Walworth County and has been in operation since 2005. The Shelter rotates between eight host church sites in Walworth County, Wisconsin, from the end of October until the end of April and is currently closed until Fall 2018. The Shelter is staffed by an Executive Director, a General Manager and host site Coordinators and Volunteers.  Click HERE to find out how you can help…

Three meals are provided daily with showers and laundry opportunities weekly. Transportation is provided to medical appointments for those who do not have transportation. Assistance is also provided with job and housing searches with the goal of the Shelter helping the men transition back into jobs, homes and the community again. We have been providing assistance for 13 years during the 6-1/2 months of Winter and over the last six Shelter years 356 men were assisted for a total of 12,446 bed nights, 3,549 meals served and 37,856 volunteer hours utilized.
