Shepherd's Cove Women's Shelter

First Baptist Church Missions Blitz Program

HOPE, Inc. has an ongoing relationship with the FBC Missions Blitz program.  More than 600 volunteers have served at 18 sites in the metro area as part of the annual Missions Blitz Day of Service.  Services have included a health fair with free screenings and demonstrations; job skills workshops with one-to-one mentoring on resume preparation, job applications and interviewing skills; beautification projects at the Anacostia Watershed, public schools, and public parks; preparing and serving meals at shelters; painting/refurbishing some residential facilities for the homeless; food collection drives; clothing collection drives; providing hand-made blankets and booties to local residential facilities; providing care and cleaning services at animal shelters, and much, much more.

Shepherd's Cove provides emergency housing assistance and shelter services to homeless women in crisis. The shelter is staffed 24 hours with confident and caring staff that is responsible for the day-to-day  operation and supervision of shelter programs, residents, and facility.  New residents are seen upon arrival and assigned a case manager who will assist in crisis intervention, adjusting to shelter and communal living, while providing referrals to address social service issues, housing,  employment and education.

HOPE, Inc. works with the Prince Georges County Social Services Foster Care Agency to provide a Transitional Home Program.  This provides a 6 months to 1 year housing program for foster care placement clients. Our clients are provided structure to help them become independent and self-supporting. They are put in an environment in which HOPE, Inc.'s volunteers can have an opportunity to teach, direct and provide motivation.  All of this helps provide a stable foundation from which our clients may enter society as productive citizens, able to handle the responsibility of the community and life.
