5 Community Partners in Pontiac

Our 5 Community Partners in Pontiac are non-profit organizations who are changing lives and improving circumstances for those they serve.  We are committed to helping their mission and walking along side them in as many ways as we can. They provide many opportunities for service that include short-term, “one and done” events and longer term projects that include utilizing participants’ professional skills.

Webster Community Center

HOPE provides safe and judgment-free shelter, innovative programs and public advocacy to end homelessness

HOPE’s  adult shelter is open from 5 PM until 9 AM providing dinner, triage healthcare, showers, overnight shelter and access to resources that can be a pathway out of homelessness. 

HOPE is a low barrier shelter, meaning that we do not require ID documents, we do not require sobriety (substances may not be brought onto the HOPE property) and no transportation barrier (because we bring most service-providers to the shelter).

Which means that  while we have a zero tolerance for bringing drugs and/or alcohol on the premises, sobriety is not a condition for entry to the shelter.  We do, however, expect and strictly enforce that shelter guests will follow staff directions and exhibit good behavior.

No previous registration is needed to spend the night at HOPE. Each year, more than 250 HOPE guests exit the shelter to a place they can call home — and keep as their home.
