Who We Are

A wonderful thing has happened to Spirit of Hope…we have been offered a place inside the Delavan United Methodist Church which has been approved by the City of Delavan!  We will now be located for 180 days each year at 213 S.

Three meals are provided daily along with showers and laundry opportunities. Assistance is given with job and housing searches.  Our goal is to help the men transition back into jobs, homes and the community again.
