Who We Are

Spirit of Hope provides safe emergency shelter for MEN WHO ARE HOMELESS FROM WALWORTH COUNTY between November and April 28, 2023.  The Shelter is staffed by an Executive Director, an On-site Supervisor and Volunteers.

We currently have a critical need for volunteers to cover the hours from 10 p.m. to approximately 10 a.m. along with our On-site Supervisor. To find out how you can help Click the Icon below.

A wonderful thing has happened to the Shelter…we now have a permanent site within the Delavan United Methodist Church which has been approved by the City of Delavan! We are located at 213 S. Second Street and men seeking shelter should call 262-903-9276 to see if a bed is available.

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

Providing assistance for 18 years during the months of November to April, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and receive funding from United Way of Walworth County, the Delavan United Congregational Church Benevolence Fund, donations and fundraising.
